Mark your calendars for the 2019 Alliance National Conference to be held for a second year at George Washington Carver High School in Sacramento.
We will be addressing the theme of Widening the Circle for a third and final year and are excited to pick up crucial themes of diversity, inclusion, and access to our education.
It requires courage to develop an alternative path on behalf of our children. Join us to explore the importance of inclusive, accessible whole-child education for all children. Participants are invited to reflect and to engage around topics of equity, race, inclusion and the policies needed to support Waldorf education in the public sector.
Dr. Jonathan Raymond, former superintendent of Sacramento City Unified school District, and author of Wildflowers. Dr. Raymond will address the perseverance and strategies needed to establish and sustain our schools and the importance of whole-child education for every child.
Luis Versalles, of The Pacific Education group will lead us in an exploration of our inner beliefs and attitudes about race, equity, and inclusion. His work focuses on helping educators to engage in and sustain conversations about race.
We are excited to share with you our latest edition of Confluence, our online magazine. This edition invites us to look back at the early years and courageous pioneers of our Public Waldorf work and of the Alliance. We trust that you will find inspiration in these offerings.
We continue to collaborate with AWSNA and WECAN (early childhood) on planning for Waldorf 100, the celebration of 100 years of Waldorf education, and on preparations for a major joint summer 2020 conference in honor of this anniversary. Save the date for June 22-25, 2020, in Chicago! We will be warmly encouraging your school to get involved in Waldorf 100 activities. Many schools have been participating in postcard exchanges with schools across the globe, giving a unique perspective on mapping the world.
