To be a teacher and educator one must work with what is taking place in the depths of human nature.”
~ Rudolf Steiner, “The Study of Man,” Lecture IV
By Catherine Austin Fitts
In this next installment of Spiritual Science in the Present Age, Thomas H. Meyer discusses education and Rudolf Steiner’s pioneering development of a new “art of education,” known today as Waldorf education.
In August 1919, just after WWI, Steiner helped launch the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart for the children of workers at Emil Molt’s Waldorf-Astoria Cigarette Factory. Steiner’s “Study of Man” lectures formed the basis for training the first cohort of teachers. In his view, educators have a responsibility to nurture each child’s individuality, intelligence, and creativity, rather than promote rote or mechanical learning. The goal is to help children learn and evolve to become truer to their own inner being.
