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!


Understanding Waldorf Education: Teaching from the Inside Out

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

    I have thought, often, about sending you an email, but, as a mother of four active boys, ages 7 and under, I rarely have the time to send a full-on email. (Even this one needs to be short and sweet. It’s 11:30 pm, here in Alaska, & my two youngest have a tendency to wake up around this time of night, lately.:-))

    However, I have read some of your writings about homeschooling, had the privilege of watching a few of your video blogs, and searched through your online store. I just finished watching the video of Jack Petrash, and it gave me the boost I was needing today. (I would go into the details as to why I needed a boost, but again, I should keep this short and sweet. As my husband likes to say, I do have the Texas Gift of Gab in me.)

    I’m grateful, each time I watch one of your videos or read an article that you’ve written, for the warmth and inspiration that I receive. Thank you, very much, for sharing your knowledge of Waldorf education, and sending out your sincere kindness and care to so many souls who are looking for encouragement.

    Many, many thanks, & many blessings.
