A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This book contains a succinct presentation of the history of educational reform in the United States from the "Nation at Risk" document in the 1980s to the "No Child Left Behind Act" of the early 2000s. In addition, the book provides a clear summary of Rudolf Steiner's ideal Threefold Social Organism which places education in the sphere of cultural/spiritual activity. In this realm all efforts would be free from any governmental or commercial control. This is a distinct opposite view of contemporary practice with the federal government taking increasing control with powerful economic influence through business-funded foundations and direct corporate investments in pharmaceuticals, text books, curriculum programs, food industries, testing, and, most influential, the technology industry. The book is a brief and powerful education in what is and what could be on behalf of children in America.

About the Author:

Gary Lamb has been associated with the Waldorf movement for over thirty years as a parent, development director, high school economics teacher, teacher training lecturer, and consultant. Most recently he co-founded The Avalon Initiative designed to develop efforts to balance the current, materialistic view of childhood and child development. In 1992 he founded the Hope through Education program, one of the first privately-funded voucher programs in the United States. Gary has written numerous essays on educational reform. Now a grandfather of a Waldorf graduate and of Waldorf students, he works through the Avalon Initiative and the Hawthorne Valley Center for Social Research to build clear pathways toward educational freedom for all children.
