FOCUS OF THE ISSUE: INITIATIVE

I hope you all found recuperation, regeneration and inspiration over the summer and are starting the year with vigor and enthusiasm. 2013-14 is shaping up to be a big, if not watershed, year for the Public Waldorf Education movement… I expect that the vigor will really come in handy!

As we go to press, I’m inspired by the collaborative Alliance effort that is providing membership with a very useful tool that aligns the new Common Core Standards with the Public Waldorf Education developmental curriculum. Many thanks to our Pedagogical Chair, Allegra Alessandri for serving as Alliance point person on the project and to Bob Anderson and Liz Beaven for the meticulous thought and attention to detail that produced it.
