    Waldorf Education

    My name is Katherine and I have been trying to find a good DL for myself. I am interested to study fashion. But my main question and reason I came to this forum is I am wondering if there are any DL for my son who recently graduated from a Waldorf education type of setting in [link deleted by Moderator] I just want to make sure he gets the best.

    In the unlikely event this is a legitimate post, there should be no difference in educational opportunities for someone who's graduated from a Waldorf school than anywhere else.

    Waldorf schools were founded by Rudolph Steiner and take a very holistic view of education , as in, educating the whole person. I know a bunch of people who graduated from Waldorf schools and they are all well rounded, thoughtful, and inquisitive types. They've been around for decades and are generally well regarded.

    Courses of apples, celery and walnuts. ... Oops! that's a Waldorf salad. Chip is, of course, right. He always is.

    It seems there are now more than 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide.

    This is not an endorsement or attempt to sell anything here , but this course-site has Waldorf leanings and Steiner figures prominently in some of the courses:

    Resources

    Its director, Andrew Flaxman, is Waldorf workshop leader and adjunct professor at Antioch University of New England .

    The site was formerly known as "Humanities Online." One drawback: These courses are mostly good for "credit" at schools with no accreditation, or non-recognized accreditation, e.g. the much-discussed Akamai University in Hawaii. There is some kind of arrangement with Empire State College - but I believe you don't get details unless you enrol at Classic Insights.

    Here's an interesting Waldorf Education grad - Barbara Berlusconi. Yes - daughter of "that" Berlusconi - Silvio, three-time Prime Minister of Italy and holder of wild parties at his "bunga-bungalow" with "Ruby the Heartstealer" (Karima El Mahroug) and a cast of thousands...

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...ndre-Pato.html

    Barbara Berlusconi's primary and secondary education both took place at the Steiner School in Milan. Naturally, from its name, it's a Waldorf school. In 2010, she graduated with a first-class degree in Philosophy, from Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, also in Milan.

    Yep - nothing beats a Waldorf education -- and a billionaire Dad!
