Partnerships of Hope: Building Waldorf School Communities
This book of essays is written out of the author's long experience with Waldorf education: as a student, a parent, a grandparent, an academic, and a consultant. The focus of these essays is on the challenge and the opportunity of building community, of forging a partnership between teachers, parents, administrative staff and friends of the school for the sake of the children and their development. It is an invitation to build community together as a seed for a new human-centered society of caring, of belonging and of mutual development. This is an inspiring account of the social mission of Waldorf education, addressing governance, leadership and decision-making.
