Product description

Mary Goral explores ways that Waldorf principles can be applied in public schools to educate children for life rather than simply to meet the demands of rigid, one-size-fits-all programs such as "No Child Left Behind." She points out ways that Waldorf methods require teachers and parents to engage more fully with students, to practice ways of self-development, and to build a greater sense of community. Using the concrete example of the "Waldorf-inspired Cadre"a group of "public-school teachers who have agreed to go on such a journey, take risks, and learn new skills along with their students"Dr. Goral shows how teachers can bring many of the benefits of Waldorf education into the public setting, with remarkable results.
