I cannot understand how any parent can send their child to a school which was founded by a person who was a staunch racist. Unless they, of course, are racists, too. Or, in utter denial.

It is one of those things that is perceived as touchy feely, with a cool granola crunch. Many parents don't learn about the woo and racism until much later on.

Of course some of them read stuff written by Steiner and only absorb certain things. They are blind to the racism.

I remember sitting in a children play area with two other mothers. One was an Asian Indian woman, and the other was a crunchy type holding a Steiner book. The latter read something from the book about spiritualism to the Indian woman, thinking that she shared this view. The Indian mom just rolled her eyes and smirked.

If you watch the administration, Board and College of Teachers (or the people that run the Waldorf Schools) you will find they are bullies, hypocrites and have very little business knowledge on how to run a school. They feel a school does not need parents. At least that was my experience at EBWS. The Head Mistress or College/Leadership Chair as she liked to be called was the coldest most untruthful person i ever met in my life. I think the school should take a hard look at itself and it's mission.

I wrote an article on Rudolf Steiner's racism:

"Waldorf Schools: Rudolf Steiner’s books are “an incitement to racial hatred”, says BPjM

In the UK a discussion is going on about Rudolf Steiner’s racism, see: “Steiner Waldorf Schools Part 3. The problem of racism“. Therefore Ruhrbarone publish a short English summary of the BPjM’s decision on Rudolf Steiner. By Andreas Lichte.


The “Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien” (BPjM) (”Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons”) examined 2 books by Rudolf Steiner for “racist content” and decided that the content of the books is racist. (...)"

After reading the comments I my opinion about Waldorf schools became negative too. I have never been very interested in them so I haven't read a lot of information. Education based on a religion sounds nuts.

I believe so. It's one reason i admire the company.
