    Waldorf Reconsidered: Myths and Misconceptions about Waldorf Education

    As the Waldorf philosophy approaches its hundredth year, it is high time to reexamine its basic premises and to assess their efficacy in the classroom. In his nearly forty years as a Waldorf teacher and consultant, Eugene has taught scores of students and visited over 150 schools. His lecture he will draw on his broad experience to address several important questions concerning Waldorf education:
    · Is the “slow and steady” approach in the primary grades holding children back in later academic achievement?

    · Are Waldorf schools deficient in their teaching of science and math?

    · Are Waldorf teachers loose in discipline, lacking in rigor, and too relaxed about accountability?

    These questions may not be new, but be prepared for some surprising answers. Even the most seasoned Waldorf parents and friends may find food for thought in Friday's presentation.
