Alternative Education Forum


Sunday 7th August

This past week, on a very hot and humid August evening, thirty or so parents attended Philadelphia’s first ever Alternative Education Forum. The event was organized and hosted by Philly Free School, a Sudbury school and the first of its kind in the City. Sitting along side Philly Free School and Greene Towne Montessori was yours truly – The Waldorf School of Philadelphia.

Philly Fun Guide described the event as “a truly unique opportunity to hear representatives from local Sudbury, Montessori and Waldorf schools discuss their unique educational philosophies and describe day-to-day workings of their schools”.

It was a pleasure to meet the families who attended the event . Thank you to Greene Towne Montessori and Philly Free School; the panel format was an interesting and informative way to compare and contrast our respective education models.
