Congratulations to Stephen K. Sagarin, the Berkshire Waldorf High School’s Executive Director and co-founder, on the publication of his latest book titled “How the Future Can Save Us: Fresh Perspectives on Waldorf Education: Principles, Methods, Curriculum,” published by Steinerbooks.
“Education prepares us for an unknown, uncertain future. Conformity, convention, and a lack of creative thinking and action will not serve us fully to face this future. We cannot know, and can only guess, what the future will bring, and we educate truly when we educate for inspiration—for insight and creativity—in the face of the unknown. We aim not to define our students, not to pigeonhole them according to our own inevitably partial and too-narrow view of the world they will inhabit and make. We aim to educate them while leaving them free to rebel, not for no reason, but for a reason, for a cause.” —Stephen Sagarin (from the introduction)
