Is Waldorf education "the best-kept secret in America"? Author Eugene Schwartz contends that many of the crises and failings of schools in the United States in the past decades could have been avoided had more been known about the Waldorf method. This book presents a concise picture of what a Waldorf school is, and why the 750 Waldorf schools worldwide have provided tens of thousands of children with "education towards freedom" throughout the twentieth century. Mr. Schwartz traces the schools' development since the founding of the first Waldorf school in 1919, explains the psychological and philosophical foundations formulated by Rudolf Steiner, and provides examples of the powerful and positive effect of life in the Waldorf classroom. For the teacher, parent or child psychologist looking for an educational system that honors and celebrates the value of childhood, this book will be a storehouse of valuable information and insight.
