"I believe that Waldorf education possesses unique educational features that have considerable potential for improving public education in America. Waldorf schools provide a program that not only fosters conventional forms of academic achievement, but also puts a premium on the development of imagination and the refinement of the sensibilities."
--Elliot Eisner, Ph.D., Professor of Education and Art, Stanford University; Past President, American Educational Research Association; Author, Curriculum and Cognition: Educating Artistic Vision
