education for the future

Imagine if school was designed for the specific purpose of bringing out the best in each child instead of trying to create corporate drones, teaching to the test, or catering to the supposed needs of “The Economy;”  imagine if your child’s teacher looked each one of her students in the eyes each morning, shook their hand, and greeted them individually by name; imagine if school was designed specifically around your child or teenager's emotional developmental stage; imagine if school was designed to wake up your children’s creative thinking abilities; imagine if school was designed around seeing the relationships across subjects instead of segregating subjects into neat compartments (that don’t exist in reality). The Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner conceived such a school system about one hundred years ago that does all of the above, it is the Waldorf school movement.
