Mary Goral explores ways that Waldorf principles can be applied in public schools to educate children for life rather than simply to meet the demands of rigid, one-size-fits-all programmes. She points out ways that Waldorf methods require teachers and parents to engage more fully with students, to practice ways of self-development, and to build a greater sense of community. Using the concrete example of the 'Waldorf-inspired Cadre' - a group of state-school teachers 'who have agreed to go on such a journey, take risks, and learn new skills along with their students' - Dr Goral shows how teachers can bring many of the benefits of Waldorf education into the public setting, with remarkable results.
