THE PATH OF MEMBERSHIP PROCESS…At the heart of the process is self-study and peer review

The purpose of the Path of Membership is to:

  • Protect the integrity and identity of Public Waldorf education through dissemination of the Core Principles of Public Waldorf Education.
  • Provide public transparency by clearly articulating the stage of a school’s development.
  • Support the growth and development of schools through a supportive process that incorporates ongoing reflection, self-study, collaboration, and peer review.
  • Ensure that member schools have policies and practices that positively reflect the Core Principles.
  • Strengthen collaboration and sharing of best practices amongst schools.
  • Provide a clear path to the Public Waldorf service mark for member schools.
  • Increase the visibility and availability of Public Waldorf education.
