Jack Petrash: Educating Children for the Future

 

This week, instead of my usual “Sunday With Sarah” video, I present to you Jack Petrash, a master Waldorf teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. He is also an author, father, and one of the best spokespersons for Waldorf education that I know.

How do we educate children in a rapidly changing world and prepare them for a future that we can’t yet envision?

Jack attempts to answer this question in an inspiring TEDx Talk entitled “Educating Children for the Journey” which I am delighted to share with you here today.

So grab a cup of tea, carve out 10 minutes for yourself, and prepare to be inspired!

BOOKS BY JACK PETRASH:

Understanding Waldorf Education: Teaching from the Inside Out

Navigating the Terrain of Childhood: A Guidebook for Meaningful Parenting and Heartfelt Discipline

Covering Home: Lessons on the Art of Fathering from the Game of Baseball
