- Sep 14, 2003Here in America a lot of parents feel equally disgusted by the
declining moral values of the public school system, and are sending
their children to private schools. My knowledge of Woldorf education
is limited but it sounds as if the Steiner approach might have its
advantages depending upon the qualifications of the teachers. The
government will pay the tuition, through the "school voucher program,"
if the Woldorf school is board certified by the state. The
certification process isn't too difficult, from what I've heard.
Private institutions like Woldorf are frequently cropping-up in urban
areas where the public school system has seriously degenerated.
Instead of the Ten Commandments, they have "I Have Two Mommies" and
twelve years olds putting condoms on cucumbers.
