Waldorf Educator Speaks on TedX

This latest TedX video circulating around on education is a must see. The talk is by Jack Petrash, founder and director of the Nova Institute, which, according to his TedX bio, “seeks to build a bridge between Waldorf Education and contemporary educators to encourage dialogue and a sense of common purpose.” Petrash is also the author of Understanding Waldorf Education: Teaching from the Inside Out.

According to Waldorf Today, Petrash believes education should “develop three essential capacities: a capacity for vibrant and vigorous activity, a capacity for a sensitive and yet resilient emotional life, and a capacity for clear, focused, original, thinking. . . . In order to develop these three capacities, we must educate our children in a multidimensional way in school.
