Very misleading article

My fellow Trustees and I were dismayed to see a very misleading article about our school, the Kelowna Waldorf School, posted February 18th on your website by Nicholas Johansen.

Since 1981, our school has filled a vital role in the Okanagan’s private education community, and we are very proud of our accomplishments, our contributions and our many graduates. It is our primary mission to provide our students, staff and families with a safe, stable and stimulating educational experience. While it is certainly true that our school has gone through a challenging time in the past several months, we feel confident that our current Board of Trustees are providing the strong leadership necessary to guide our community.

Many of the statements in the Castanet article about Waldorf educational principles and methods were completely inaccurate – too many to cite individually! To correct these misapprehensions, we direct your reporter and readers to www.waldorfeducation.org/waldorf_education for a brief overview of the Waldorf educational philosophy.

Rick Salsa, President
Board of Trustees
