The Fullfledge Ecology School is a Steiner ‘inspired’ school in the UK. It is applying for free school status. Melanie Byng writes about the school in this post over at the Suffolk Humanists’ blog. For some reason the school wants to be a Steiner school and not be a Steiner school, at the same time. This is not very commendable. One must give them some credit for posting this hilarious piece of writing on geese, though.
If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation with those people who are headed the same way we are.
This attitude, one might note, could equally well lead to disaster as to success, especially if headed in a bad direction… In this case, I guess, they’re only heading towards increased nonsense. So, more on the geese:
Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
What message do we give when we honk from behind?
I can’t possibly tell, but I don’t have the sense of a goose, nor do I fly in a formation, nor am I trying to open a non-Steiner Steiner school. What is the message? Would anybody care to guess?
