This video is an excellent introduction to the Waldorf movement in North America as it exists and thrives in the private Waldorf schools. The sixteen-minute program captures the spontaneity and joy of the Waldorf classroom, and offers insights into the interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum and the central role of the fine and applied arts in education. It features children and their teachers from kindergarten through twelfth grade at four different Waldorf schools. If you are at a loss to explain why your child's school is so unique, or why you want to start a Waldorf school, this video will help!

Every parent, teacher and adult who wants children to relish their education needs to see this video.
Margaret Wheatley, Ed.D. Author, "Leadership and the New Science"
I couldn't agree more with Dr. Wheatley's assertion -- The Waldorf Promise is an inspiring exploration of the heart of Waldorf education; it takes you right into some of our nation's most creative and effective classrooms and brings you face to face with public school teachers who have taken Steiner's pedagogy, understood it well, and then delivered to their students an education so deep, so broad, and so wonder-filled that I get chills up and down my spine just thinking about it. This film does nothing less than record the most hopeful possibility in education -- and demonstrate that it works like nothing else!
I should also add that The Waldorf Promise has been a part of dozens of charter school application processes, and has won votes and demolished myths each and every time.
This new DVD is not only half the price of the old video, the bonus footage is something I would have paid extra to see.
Outstanding in every way!
