About the Author

Jack Petrash has been a teacher for over 30 years, much of that time at the Washington Waldorf School in Maryland where he has taken three classes of children from grade one through grade eight.

Reviews

"Jack Petrash's eloquent, wise, and deeply moving book gives me a new found appreciation for Waldorf education. Even though I have been a Waldorf parent for nearly twenty-five years and a Waldorf teacher for nearly two years, I found Petrash's explanation of the curriculum's three-fold approach fresh and illuminating. Whether you are a parent, an educator, a policy maker, or simply a person interested in human growth and learning, read this book. You will learn how relevant education through the "head, heart, and hands" can be for our children and for the future we hope to create." --Eric Utne, founder of the Utne Reader
