Waldorf worldwide, Self-administration at Waldorf schools

No day like another – chief executive of a Waldorf School

By Susanne Piwecki, June 2022

Waldorf schools are like small or medium-sized businesses. Everything, from teaching to bookkeeping and balance sheets, from building maintenance to waste disposal, has to be managed. The management is responsible for providing a suitable infrastructure so that the educational operation can run smoothly. Meeting the needs of the school community is its challenging and varied, but also exciting task.  [more]

"Green Future" at the Trier Waldorf School

By Mario Gilcher, Christoph Hartmann, April 2022

When we met for the first time in the summer of 2020, the drive to do something was great. Under the motto "climate-neutral Waldorf schools now", representatives of parents, teachers and pupils discussed numerous ideas with the initiators of CO2ero on how we can reduce the ecological footprint of the daycare and school community as much as possible.

Aregnasan. The Waldorf school in Yerevan defies the crisis

By Ruben Janibekyan, November 2021

Current situation The year 2020 was extraordinarily difficult for all of Armenia. First, the already weak economy contracted sharply in spring 2020 because of the pandemic. In one fell swoop, a third of the parents became unemployed and unable to pay, and another third got into serious difficulties paying the full school fees. The school’s administration was inundated with requests from parents for a payment break or reduction. Some parents also refused to pay in full because, of course, with online teaching the Waldorf quality disappeared completely.

Waldorf alumni. A form of school with developmental tasks

October 2021

The Corona crisis shows how important social contacts and community are – especially for adolescents. In the past months, they have clearly experienced the limits of digital learning in remote lessons and learned that an educational institution is more than just a place where knowledge is imparted and where pupils are prepared for entry into the world of work. But what exactly is school supposed to do? In the study We went to a Waldorf school (published by Beltz Juventa), former Waldorf pupils provided information about their time at school and its influence on their later life. In the following interview, co-editor Professor Dirk Randoll talks about surprising results, confirmed prejudices and the challenges for Waldorf schools in the future. [more]
