Each Parent Carries the Flame: Waldorf Schools as sites for promoting lifelong learning, creating community and educating for social renewal

The study for this book was undertaken for a doctoral thesis. This book investigates the notion of the adult learning community in the context of Steiner Education in Australia through a comprehensive case study of the community associated with one particular school - the Mt. Barker Waldorf School for Rudolf Steiner Education. Theories of adult, lifelong and transformative learning are compared with the practice of the school community as a framework for discussing the extent to which such a context encourages and facilitates lifelong learning for adults, particularly parents. Available in N. America from Rudolf Steiner College Bookstore or directly from the Australian publisher.
