LINKS




Here are links that you can use to go to other websites presenting information about

Waldorf (or Steiner) schools, Anthroposophy, and various Anthroposophical undertakings.




An excellent site critical of Waldorf and Steiner is

PLANS, People for Legal And Nonsectarian Schools

waldorfcritics.org 



PLANS also hosts a continuing discussion of all things Waldorf:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/waldorf-critics/messages/



A thoughtful, critical site in the UK is

UK Anthroposophy

http://ukanthroposophy.wordpress.com/



Another UK site is The Quackometer;

it is not wholly focused on Waldorf schooling,

but it has several valuable postings:

documents many families' unhappy Waldorf experiences:

including Steiner’s:

long conflict with a Waldorf school:







For resources that may provide some assistance to 
those who have been bruised by their Waldorf experiences,






Here are some specific essays and reports you may want to read.
I cannot personally attest to everything in them,
and indeed I disagree with some parts of some of them,
but I think you will find all of them instructive.
