Articles in the Online Waldorf Library come from many sources. Quite a number are from the archives of journals and publications published over the past 50+ years. When possible we have noted the specific source although this is not always possible.
Included in the "article" search database are all articles in currently in print journals: Gateways, the Research Bulletin and the Waldorf Journal Project.
The Online Waldorf Library includes:
Education as an Art, the first widely circulated journal about Waldorf education in the United States. It began in 1940 as the Bulletin of the Rudolf Steiner School Association. The purpose of the journal was to inform Americans about Rudolf Steiner's pedagogy. In 1969 the journal became known as Education as an Art: A Journal for the Waldorf Schools of North America.

A Talk to the Parents of the Fifth through Eighth Grades
Some time ago one of our students, who had gone abroad for a year, wrote me that she was with her class and their teacher on a 3-week sojourn in the mountains to learn what it means to live as a community. Her question to me was, "Why can't we do something like that in the Steiner School?" I would not tell tales out of school except to point up the fact that community spirit is hard to come by, for when later we did undertake a 3-day class trip, she was on hand and contributed several yards of paper toweling to wrap around and muffle the rising bell, and it was easy for her to misread the importance of promptness to meals and of not hiking off into the woods without a word to anyone.
