Further to my recent post on childhood illness, someone pointed out to me that Joe Evans, one of the directors of the Stroud Academy company, was filmed earlier this year saying that his school, the Bristol Steiner Academy will be participating in the government’s HPV vaccination programme, and that it will not have an anthroposophical doctor.
He also said that there will be no unchecked bullying and that the school, despite being part of the SWSF and teaching the Steiner curriculum, will not teach pseudoscience such as “the heart is not a pump”.
The film can be found by searching for “Joe Evans Steiner school vaccination”.
I saw this film yesterday, and my biggest surprise is that Mr Evans appears considerably younger than the hairy individual playing a melodeon in his facebook picture. What he said was not a surprise – Steiner followers are good at “talking the talk” – I have never yet heard one admit “we teach pseudoscience” or “we believe in karma”.
