Antiracism statement:
As waldorf educators we hold the dignity of life and the human being at the center of our work. It is our responsibility to bear witness to what is happening in the world, to elevate the voices of marginalized people, to change the course of inequities, and to break down structural prejudice in all forms where it exists, particularly in waldorf education.

I've heard that Rudolf Steiner made racist comments. Is this true?

"Yes. We find Rudolf Steiner’s comments about and characterizations of race wrong, offensive, and indefensible. Our staff and board reject any and all racism. We have engaged in an honest examination to acknowledge and confront Steiner’s statements on race, as well as racism in our time. We are committed to ongoing learning and positive action to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, both at RSF and in the world."

Green Meadow Waldorf School

Diversity and teacher training

We are proud to have trained nearly 100% of our faculty and staff in the Undoing Racism framework. A 14-member cohort completed an Equity Pedagogy Seminar in Fall 2019 with Randolph Carter of East Ed and Jenna Chandler-Ward of Teaching While White. We have worked with Gender Spectrum, The Ackerman Institute for the Family, Dr. Howard Stevenson, Simone Gamble, Dr. Weldon McWilliams IV, and many others to train faculty, staff, students, and parents on a variety of topics related to diversity and inclusion.

Waldorf School Of St. Louis, MO

This sounds good!

DIVERSITY STATEMENT

We welcome students, parents, faculty, and staff of all races and sexual orientations, and of all faiths and creeds. We respect and support each individual’s spiritual beliefs and practices.

 

It is a fundamental goal of our education to bring students to an understanding and experience of the common humanity of all of the world’s people, transcending the stereotypes, prejudices, and divisive barriers of classification by sex, race, religion, nationality, and ability.

 

This is accomplished through our carefully crafted curriculum, which gives students a deep and rich experience of selected religious traditions and cultural/historical milieus and by school-wide and individual grade celebrations of seasonal festivals.

 

We reject racism in all its forms, and embrace the principles of common humanity expressed by the founder of Waldorf Education:

 

We must cast aside the division into races. We must seek to unite people of all races and nations, and to bridge the divisions and differences between various groups of people.”

 

Rudolf Steiner, The Universal Human, Lecture 1

Comments

  • Our research of Waldorf School websites show that many Waldorf schools have established Diversity committees  made up of parents and teachers who are fanatic members of the cult of woke. Then these committees are able to direct the whole school, influence hiring, insist on indoctrination retraining of staff/teachers, provide extreme left-wing curriculum and how to teach (indoctrinate) resources, encourage informants to report wrong thought etc. It is very chilling.
