Graduation: The Class of 2013 became the Class of 2017 last night. (Now I have a high school student.) Of course anyone who has ever seen this class perform knows they have always been stand-outs in putting on a good show. I’ve seen several Waldorf graduations now, and I think this was my favorite. Not just because Eichenlaub and Eichenlaub were up there on stage flanking the class, but because of the quality of the event, the depth and humor in every speech, the honesty and poise. And what I saw were sixteen young people whose individual learning needs were uniquely met by Waldorf education: aspects of academics, challenges of class trips, imagination and joy in learning, performing arts, visual arts, the sense of community, the support of their peers—-all important parts of fledging them into the astonishingly talented, balanced people they are today.
