I have no strong feelings about the Waldorf method. I like the focus on music. The delayed literacy component worries me.

However, I can't support the plan to subsidize Waldorf by $319 per child per year for next two years. It continues the trend of dividing schools into tiers -- an elite programming level that receives special funding, and a lingering rump of community schools that are seen as merely regular.
