Steve Sagarin has posted another post on the waldorf elevator speech. I commented:
I sincerely hope no parent would be naive enough to send their child to waldorf education based upon this elevator speech. It does not tell the parent what s/he needs to know to make an informed decision, I’m afraid. And, also, this kind of thing is what gets waldorf into trouble — this is what parents, once they feel they’ve been let down, will be angry at. They will feel it’s deceptive — even if that was not the intention.
Waldorf needs to do better than this — present itself more accurately and honestly than this, and not provide a lot of *blah blah blah* instead of getting to the point — or waldorf will have fuming parents on its hands.
There was an earlier post, with a long discussion thread, on which I also commented. Not sure I ever made any comment on my own blog about it (my memory fails me — no, I did comment, didn’t I? Oh damn…), but here’s that thread in any case.
