Description:     

This book of essays is written out of a long experience with Waldorf education. It is for the children, teachers, parents, administrators and friends of this unique educational movement that is worldwide in scope and as diverse as the many cultural areas which it serves.

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.
