This is a group for people defending Steiner Waldorf education and schools from social justice ideology and anti-racist education that stands in direct opposition to Rudolf Steiner's Waldorf principles of education and his Philosophy Of Freedom. This fight is part of the broader Culture War that is being fought throughout society between the identity politics of the extreme Left and the Enlightenment values of freedom, individuality and empowerment that we are familiar with.

If you want get involved in the effort to defend Waldorf schools you are welcome to participate in this work group. Each person selects their own way to participate.

"Freedom is the only word which has a ring of immediate truth today… If, instead of such slogans as peace founded on justice, or peace imposed by force, people would only speak of peace based on freedom, then this word would echo round the world and kindle in the hearts of all a sense of security." Rudolf Steiner

  • [Update: Subscribe to email discussion group in box on front page of website-right column] I am trying to set up an email discussion group: For Waldorf parents, teachers, admin and others to share news, ideas and strategy on how to defend Steiner Waldorf education from the take over by social justice activists. Also to report social justice activity and indoctrination in Waldorf schools.
  • Interestingly enough the page linked to Stephens College "is no longer valid" within the college's website.
    • It looks like Stephen College expanded the original list with more anti-racist resources for white people. The new PDF is here:
    • Again, Waldorf communities that use the materials on this list can be easily embarrassed by simply applying sunlight to these materials and providing the materials transparently to parents. These materials are not just focused on "anti-racism." They are highly political, and address a broad range of issues including pro-Palestinian issues, pro-Marxism issues, Anti-Trump issues (e.g. see an organization against Trump and advocating for "Swinging Georgia Left."), and of course a huge helping of Critical Race Theory, including the most vile examples of overt anti-white racism.

      Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) believes in collective liberation — and that none of us can be free until we end white supremacy. SURJ’s role as…
  • To this concerned community: The AWSNA recommended reading list for "Anti-Racism Resources" was created by two activists (completely unaffiliated and unconnected to Waldorf), Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein. Their names are at the bottom of the reading list, so I'm not disclosing anything not already public. After some digging, I share the following with this group that the list is published on the web on the Stephens College website, here:

    After spending quite a bite of time reading the materials recommended on this list, I think the most effective way to push back on this movement is to simply raise awareness of this material to other parents in the community. The linked material is angry, overtly skin-color centric, anti-White, anti-White Woman, anti-male, anti-police, pro-Palestinian, pro-Marxist, anti-capitalist, pro "revolution," pro "destruction of the political-economic system of capitalism," etc., etc. The NYT's 1619 Project is recommended and supported.

    I think parents that oppose this should organize to oppose it, and one of the techniques I think is to challenge AWSNA and the Waldorf schools that support this to be courageous.

    Have Courage.

    Don't hide behind vague terms like "equity," "social justice" and "inclusion," if Waldorf's official position is Pro-Marxism, and Pro-White Racism. If Waldorf's official position is that all white people are racist White Supremacists, and that White parents and children need to be re-educated about their White Privilege, then AWSNA and Waldorf Schools should have the courage to stand behind these convictions. Parents should demand full transparency. The AWSNA website, and the Waldorf School websites, should loudly and proudly list the School's official position on these issues.

    Parents wanting to enroll children in Waldorf schools should know the School will be teaching children to identify based on skin-color. That White children and parents are deemed racist and White Supremacists. That Waldorf children will be taught, starting in kindergarten, to become activists to "destroy the political-economic systems of capitalism and imperialism and patriarchy."

    To Waldorf Leadership: I challenge you to have the courage to put your new convictions on the DEI page on your website. Our local school said they believe these new "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion" policies will increase enrollment. If that's true, then have the courage to spell on your enrollment and DEI web pages, what you mean when you say these words. Shouldn't be a problem for enrollment, right?
  • One can't be an anthroposophist and a SJW at the same time. It's absurd! Waldorf teachers are supposed to have a decent working knowledge of Rudolf Steiner's teachings. Marxism has literally infiltrated every aspect of society. FIGHT BACK!
  • This is also a reality among Waldorf Schools here in Brazil... Thanks to your work in this site I have organized strong arguments based in Steiner's work in order to face these local challenges.

    "so called 'social justice' appears naturally in our souls when we develop ourselves properly, a concept like "internal racism" underscoring any Waldorf education is repugnant and an insult to Steiner' teachings"
  • This was posted to me on YouTube: "Hey heads up- Waldorf schools are being completely taken over by the Leftist Cult Religion of Woke. Take it from an insider. Waldorf Education has now completely abandoned the teachings & principles of Steiner, or has twisted them to fit the contemporary identity politics woke agenda. Waldorf Education is now a factory of Leftist Cult Indoctrination."
  • Every journey begins with the first step. I choose the step of freedom.
