The striving that is characteristic of our present age involves a search for the universally human, that which – in spite of all the differences of race, skin-color, creeds, customs and traditions – defines us as human beings. It is exactly in that sense that the spiritual element in a Waldorf school is active. It lives in order to embrace all diversities of belief, rather than to serve one particular direction.
Our image of the human being, freedom in teaching, the holistic process, and relationships are pillars of Waldorf education that diversity in your library will support and advance (The Pedagogical Section Council, 2017). I have thoughtfully and carefully picked each of these books, drawing from my graduate education in social work, international perspective, and personal experience. I know that my top picks will be different than yours— so share them with us in the comments!
