What the elite value in their children’s education- it’s not High Stakes Testing

The Gift of Learning – Short Film

The Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship commissioned ITN to make this short film to look at some of the key features of a Steiner School including:
– how Steiner Schools nurture spiritual development in keeping with the cultural setting of the school and without being tied to a particular faith;
– the emphasis on “doing” to complement academic learning;
– how the absence of testing in the younger years nurtures enthusiasm for learning;
– the importance of quietness and contemplation as part of the school day.
