I think she meant the opposite of "craft projects," computer work sheets, etc., i.e. art which has the potential to engage the soul. You should see the skill in drawing, and use of color and expression of mood exhibited by the majority of the students at this school. By the time they hit the 8th grade, they are impressively accomplished. I am struck also, by how well they all sing, including the boys. They begin singing in pre-school. Students do not use textbooks but rather create illustrated workbooks with beautiful handwriting for any subject which they are studying. Each class writes and performs a play each year which highlights the area of history and culture they are studying. Deep it is, and thankfully so in a culture now full of the glaringly superficial.....

We're so happy for you. Now tell little Buffy and Skippy to go apply those skills in drawing, and use of color and expression of mood, accomplished singing skills and beautiful handwriting skills in the real world and get back to us there, Ms. 8th grade class parent volunteer.

You're funny Oh zero-balancing one. Can I come over and take a picture of your pink unicorn if you have some free time between scarf making, fondue parties and Skippy's play practice? Would you be talking about the hundreds of Waldork graduates who have attended Waldork schools from around the world as opposed to the millions of University graduates who have attended PUBLIC schools around the world?("Dream jobs" is so laughable that I won't bother.) And who use Twitter and Facebook to keep in touch with their public school friends? Yes, the number of "friends" you have on Facebook is a certain indicator of career success. Actually it is a MORE reliable indicator of how badly your employer is getting ripped off by you spending all your time on Facebook instead of working at your dream job.
