Beyond 100: The Past, Present and Future of Waldorf Education

May 7 @ 3:00 pm EDT

Torin Fisher headshotCOVID-19 arrived halfway through the centennial year of Waldorf education, a moment in time in which many had planned to review, evaluate, and plan.  Now, with all that is upon us, this process has gained added urgency.

What is our social mandate?  Where do we stand today?  How can parents and teachers work toward a “reopening” that holds the best of past traditions and is yet radically new?

This free, one hour webinar with Torin Finser, PhD, will look back to the founding of the first Waldorf school in 1919, touch on our current realities, and explore pathways forward. All are welcome!
