    DescriptionThis is a detailed account of Rudolf Steiner's view of children, and the role education must play in their successful development. "Gilbert Childs" examines and explains the curriculum of Steiner-Waldorf schools, showing how their unique teaching practices take a holistic view of the child. He looks particularly at issues such as creativity, imagination, and intellect, and how the schools try to produce rounded, responsible young adults. He concludes that our approach to the education of our children is an issue of the utmost urgency for the future of our society.
