Book understanding Waldorf education, teaching from the inside out – Jack Petrash
The book understanding Waldorf Education, teaching from the inside out, by Jack Petrash, an experienced Waldorf teacher, offers a clear, concise and common sense overview of Waldorf education and the benefits it can offer families. A jargon-free guide for parents and educators, understanding Waldorf education explores all aspects of Steiner-Waldorf education for those with no previous experience of this uniquely educational approach.
Based on the philosophy of a three-dimensional education, Waldorf schools have been around for over ninety years and there are now over a thousand around the world, working in a variety of cultures and ethnicities. All schools have one thing in common: helping children to develop into young adults with a strong sense of self and the ability to be socially and economically responsible citizens, contributing to their world in a positive manner.
As mainstream education frequently prioritises exam results and other external markers of achievement, Waldorf education turns this inside out by putting the child first and encouraging a love of learning and an enthusiasm for school.
Understanding Waldorf education gives a common sense understanding of an education which answers modern needs and is an ideal reference for parents and teachers alike.
The understanding Waldorf education book is published by Floris Books.
