If you are a student, parent or educator concerned about the take over of Rudolf Steiner's Waldorf Education by Social Justice activists contact Tom. I am looking for comments, stories and concerns about what is happening to Waldorf Education. You may remain anonymous but your stories must be told. The Marist political ideology of the social justice movement has no place in Waldorf education as it stands in direct opposition to Rudolf Steiner's principles of freedom.
WALDORF INSIDER REPORTS: "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."

The Philosophy Of Freedom Values - Truth, Individuality, and Freedom
The Philosophy Of Freedom is the most important work of German Philosopher Rudolf Steiner. It was written in the 1890’s for the increasing conceptual power of scientific thinking that produced the rapid rise in technology. It is a science of freedom that places human evolution toward freedom on a scientific basis.
Postmodern Neo-Marxist Values (social justice movement) - Blind Passion, Tribalism, Cultural Determinism
The values of Steiner’s Philosophy Of Freedom—Truth, Individuality, and Freedom— are opposed today by Postmodern Neo-Marxism that began with radical social protests in the late 1960’s. The value of truth is replaced with blind passion, individualism is replaced with tribalism, and freedom is replaced with cultural determinism. Postmodern Neo-Marxism is the underlying ideology of the today's Social Justice Movement expressed in Political Correctness.
This classroom picture is an adaptation.
Rudolf Steiner's Waldorf School Movement was intended to develop the child's free spirit. Some Waldorf schools are now moving in a different direction --social justice. On the surface, social justice attitudes seem like positive values to promote, for who wants to see people oppressed? But is such an approach too one-sided for a classroom, particularly one filled with children in their formative years? Will children have a narrow view of life and history if they are taught to view themselves and everything else around them as victims of oppression? The oppressor / oppressed standpoint is Marxist ideology which is the basis of todays social justice movement popularized by the media.
Is The Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) Promoting Socialism?
The Neo-Marxist Social Justice Movement has infiltrated the WALDORF SCHOOLS with its emphasis on group identity according to race and gender in opposition to Steiner's vision of free individuality. "The Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) annual summer conference was on looking at Waldorf education through the lens of social justice." Communist / Socialist ideology of equal distribution was advocated at the AWSNA Conference: "social, monetary and land resources and rights need to be shared equitably."

Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School New Social Justice School Director
Has the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School made a dramatic move away from Steiner education and toward becoming a Social Justice school? Dr. Sue Das (new school director) seems highly experienced in social justice but lacking in knowledge of Waldorf education: Read more about Dr. Das.

Emerson Waldorf School Diversity Committee
Many Waldorf schools are forming Diversity Committees to implement and monitor politically correct behavior according to Social Justice ideology in the schools. The Emerson Waldorf School encourages informants to come forward to report students, teachers, staff or even family members for offensive behavior they consider to be racist. As we have seen it is almost impossible to defend yourself against an accusation of being a racist. Read more about the Emerson Waldorf Diversity Committee
"If any member of the community – students, teachers, staff, family members – observes or feels threatened by racist behavior, please contact a member of the Diversity Committee." Emerson Waldorf Diversity Committee
Social Justice Curriculum For Waldorf Schools
How much of the Waldorf Curriculum Will Be Replaced By A Social Justice Curriculum? Moving a Waldorf/Steiner school toward Social Justice will necessarily change the curriculum. Here is a Sample Social Justice Lesson PDF from a Social Justice curriculum suggested by Waldorf inspired Oak Meadow. The Waldorf curriculum was founded on Rudolf Steiner's principles for developing free individualities. The Social Justice curriculum is founded on the ideology of postmodern neo-marxism, commonly known as political correctness, which emphasizes collective group identity according to race, gender and sexuality. A Social Justice curriculum will teach your child about the bias and injustice in the world, help them discover their group identity, learn about the injustice of capitalism, how they are oppressed by the privileged, and how they identify on the gender spectrum.
Dr. Torin Finser's new vision for Social Justice Waldorf Schools
According to Waldorf education expert Dr. Torin Finser of Antioch University New England, Waldorf Schools need to "connect with the current issues dividing our society: political polarization, racism, income inequality, immigration, nationalism, and religious fundamentalism." By focusing on these problems in the grade schools he says it can transform the local community. It sounds like Dr. Finser would like to turn the grade school children into political activists by introducing them to how terrible the world really is. Read more
Green Meadow Waldorf School -"broad commitment to social justice"
The goals of the school's "Diversity and Inclusion Committee" include increasing enrollment by giving special preference to underrepresented groups and an affirmative action hiring practice to diversify faculty and staff. They are in the process of training the entire faculty and staff to overcome their assumed prejudice in the "Undoing Racism" framework. These methods of reverse racism often are a divisive influence in the school community when qualified students and job applicants may be rejected because of the color of their skin. Studies show that there is more diversity within a group then there is between groups. Read more
"Dr. Das brings to her position at the Steiner School a deep commitment to equity and social justice in teaching and learning."
"(Dr. Das is) skilled in curriculum alignment and development..."
"Dr. Sue Das is the right person at the right time for Steiner, as we go through a vitally important transition in our school's history," said Chris Lee, president of the Steiner School Board of Trustees and a member of the school director search committee. "She brings extraordinary knowledge as an educator, deep experience as an administrator, and wisdom from her rich and meaningful life story. Combine all this with her fresh perspective, quiet confidence and compassion for children, and we will have a very strong leader to help guide our future."
An experienced global educator, Dr. Das has broad teaching, literacy, and leadership experience in primary, secondary, and higher educational settings. Skilled in curriculum alignment and development, and holistic assessment frameworks, she is an international presenter in literacy topics.
A native of Calcutta, India, Dr. Das brings to her position at the Steiner School a deep commitment to equity and social justice in teaching and learning. She has worked as a board member and a volunteer to create international literacy initiatives for non-profits, including Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta.
Dr. Das earned her Ph.D in language, literacy and learning from Fordham University in New York and holds master of arts degrees in both teaching (N-6) and reading (K-12) from Manhattanville College in Purchase, N.Y., as well as a master of arts degree in English from the University of Calcutta and a bachelor of arts degree in English from Saint Xavier's College in Calcutta, India. Dr. Das holds a certificate of advanced educational leadership from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education and has completed educational leadership training at the Vanderbilt University Peabody School of Education, The Children's School, Fairfield University, and Kingswood Oxford School. Most recently, Dr. Das was a fellow at the National Association of Independent School's Aspiring Heads Institute.
Dr. Das comes to the Steiner School from the Brunswick School in Greenwich, Conn., an independent, college preparatory day school providing character-based education for boys in pre-kindergarten through grade 12. At Brunswick, Dr. Das has served as a teacher and administrator since 1998 and currently serves as the co-director of the Brunswick Faculty Institute, an in-house professional development program. Throughout her career, she has championed linguistics, literacy, early childhood, special education, action research and STEAM, for which she received her teaching certification in 2015. Dr. Das's teaching experience includes gifted, remedial, and other elementary education programs for children from pre-K through grade 8, as well as adjunct professorships in language and literacy at Queens College of Education, Manhattanville College of Education, and Iona College of Education.
Commenting on her appointment as Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School Director, Dr. Das writes, "In my own life, I strive to be a global citizen and have been blessed with truly remarkable teachers. These authentic relationships and experiences, coupled with my own sense of calling in my work, have brought me to this unique haven that is the Steiner School. I have seldom seen the absolute and pure joy, excitement, commitment and passion for education that I've seen at Steiner. As the Director, I am looking forward to being part of the Steiner School fabric — to grow and learn alongside the community, as well as continue the work of educating the 'whole child' in the 21st century."
Rudolf Steiner: Peace Based On Freedom, Not Social Justice
Joining The Epic Battle
The Democratic Socialists are strong advocates for the Social Justice Movement. What's wrong with Democratic Socialism?
Whats wrong with Equity, Diversity & Inclusivity? It sounds good. JBP: Make no mistake. The real purpose of Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity is an all-out war on even the concept of excellence.
The Ideology of the Social Justice Movement is Political Correctness which is rooted in a mix of Postmodernism and Neo-Marxism. What is wrong with this Ideology?
5:59 The central claim of Postmodernism is that there is an infinite number of ways to explain even a finite set of phenomena.
How The Social Justice Movement Uses Political Correctness To Destroy Western Civilization To Make Way For Socialism.
The Social Justice Movement has infiltrated our universities and is spreading into politics to divide us into identity groups. Identity politics is the new form of Marxist oppressor / oppressed doctrine that opposes free individuality and can only lead us, Peterson warns, toward a war of all against all.
In The Universities Post-Modernism Is Undermining Western Civilization
The Social Justice Movement dominates university liberal arts. Now it is beginning to infiltrate lower grade education.
WALDORF SCHOOL ALERT: The Social Justice Movement has infiltrated the WALDORF SCHOOLS with its emphasis on group indentity according to race, gender and sexuality in opposition to Steiner's vision of free individuality.
