The Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education constitute an important bridge that spans the work of both independent and public Waldorf schools in the United States. Although the seven Principles are simple enough to fit on a single page, they speak volumes concerning the unique nature of Waldorf methodology in all settings. In this slideshow of student work, Eugene Schwartz explores just one of these Principles: Relationships. Although it is described in just two sentences, Eugene contends that it is the most comprehensive of the Principles and the “source” of them all. In addition to his own insights, Eugene shares examples of Waldorf student work that will help you to understand the term “relationships” in an entirely new way.
Eugene Schwartz taught for many years at Green Meadow Waldorf School and directed the Teacher Training Program at the Sunbridge Institute. He lectures internationally on Waldorf education and has consulted with over 150 schools, public and private, worldwide.
