I saw this on my facebook and had to share.
I get a lot of questions about why I’m so unfamiliar with media trends and technology from my childhood, and this is why. I went to a Waldorf school for the first 11 years of my educations. Although my school was free tuition because they wanted to provide an alternative option to poor families, the general idea is the same. The emphasis is on art, personal development and growth, and creative problem solving.
Waldorf school is a fantastic alternative to the mind numbing processes of public school. They are located all over the country, particularly on the west coast. It is not hard to find Waldorf schools nearby, and it is a brilliant alternative for children that do not learn well in tradition methods. I loved it, and gained so so much from it.
Just, look into it if your starting to think about your children’s future.
This reminded me of my childhood.

Cynthia Ozick’s stirring defense of Kafka, the man: “Whoever utters ‘Kafkaesque’ has neither fathomed nor intuited nor felt the impress of Kafka’s devisings. If there is one imperative that ought to accompany any biographical or critical approach, it is that Kafka is not to be mistaken for the Kafkaesque.”
