How do Waldorf students fare after graduation? How many of them go to college? What subjects do they choose to major in at college? Do they feel that their Waldorf education prepared them well for post-secondary studies? Did we, in fact, prepare them well for college? And then what? What do they do next? What professions do they choose for themselves? What kind of lives do they tend to live? How are they doing financially? How is there health? And are they—if we may dare ask—, at the end of the day, happy?
A key job of a school is to give students new things to love — an exciting field of study, new friends…Children learn from people they love, and that love in this context means willing the good of another, and offering active care for the whole person.
Each year, Steiner organizes the visits of a diverse group of schools to help students figure out the “right fit.” This year, the group embarked on an ambitious college road trip from March 25th-27th.
