Okay, well for years I was dead set on sending all of my children to Waldorf. My best friend is a teacher and I learned about the schooling right along with her while she finished her masters at a very popular Waldorf college. I often flew up to visit her and sit in on classes as well. Anyway.. with out getting into detail about what has taken place.. yesterday, after years and years of teaching, she came into view of what she says "waldorf is truely about" She immediatly pulled her daughter out of the school, enrolled her in public school and quit her job.
Needless to say, after doing my own research these months she has been warning me.. I am much more hesitant to send my kids any longer. This leaves me with a great void. I am a very picky person when it comes to my kids education. I love the holistic approach that waldorf has, along with the caring for others teachings. I like block learning as opposed to having several lessons of different subjects each day. I prefer art/ play based schools and little to no media esp while at school. (Ie mainsteam influence, not science type learning videos)
We are christian and have considered other christian schools, but I dont want a stern learning envirioment that I grew up in.
What other options are out there? I am not a fan of montissori, so that option is out. I see other types of education at the top of this forum, but am unaware as to what they are. I have never heard of them.
Any help you guys could offer would be amazing! TIA!
