Insight: Progressive Education: Waldorf / "All Natural" / Louise Leakey / Home Brewing


 
 
Progressive Education: Waldorf  You probably know the names Montessori or Waldorf and you may have some impressions about what they teach at each school, but how much do you really know?  If one of these schools moved into your backyard would you send your child to it?  With the popularity of alternative education styles growing as traditional school districts struggle with finances, we'd like to take a moment to explore what's behind Waldorf education and why parents choose these schools over traditional public education?  This is part of a two-part series looking to demystify progressive education.  Tuesday we explore the basic tenants of Montessori education.  Dr. Nancy Poer is our guest.
