After a summer of collaborative work, the Board of Directors of the Alliance adopted new Core Principles of the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education at its September meeting, with the intention that they ensure that “PublIc Waldorf education is ever-evolving, and continuously renewed through practice, research, observation, and active reflection.”


Also, as a part of ongoing efforts with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA), a joint summary of key similarities and differences between Alliance schools and AWSNA schools and principles has been developed, noting that both sets of principles arise from the same source.
