“We must recognize in the children born today a preview of what must be developed in the coming generations; we must learn to educate prophetically. The fact is that we must educate prophetically, we are to foresee what are to be the tasks of the next generation.”
“As a scientist involved in research into the physics of perception, I am impressed both with the content of this curriculum—which includes “right-hemispheric” learning activities to complement the analytical, or “left-hemispheric” side—and with the style of the curriculum, which promotes direct involvement, creativity and attention to detail. This wholistic, well-grounded and in-depth approach is what is required to meet the challenges of a stressful, fast moving, technological age, while keeping one’s will and sense of purpose alive and well.”
“Waldof education addresses the child as no other education does. Learning, whether in chemistry, mathematics, history or geography, is imbued with life and so with joy, which is the only basis for later study. The textures and colors of nature, the accomplishments and struggles of humankind fill the Waldorf students’ imaginations and the pages of their beautiful [main lesson] books. Education grows into a union with life that serves them for decades.By the time they reach us at the college and university level, these students are grounded broadly and deeply and have a remarkable enthusiasm for learning. Such students possess the eye of the discoverer, and the compassionate heart of the reformer, which, when joined to a task, can change the world.”
