|I can, however, shed some light on Waldorf education and draw from many years of personal hands-on experience with Waldorf. Why isn't that a good thing?|
|Pete, I think you have some beneficial information and opinion to share.|

I'm not sure Deborah is criticizing anything. Are you Deborah?

I'm just disappointed that two weeks of open criticism and discussion of waldorf has resulted in the basically the same old, same old. I've heard a lot of arguments over the years that "shutting out" the critics hurts waldorf. Well, Mothering has been kind enough to host an open discussion of waldorf for a good two weeks or so and so far the outcome isn't super impressive.
Come on, isn't there anything else that emerged during the discussions here? Positive, constructive, only. I'm all too familiar with the negative comments on waldorf and anthroposophy...
