No Free School for Stroud

Quote from Stroud Life;

THE proposed state-funded Steiner school for Stroud has missed out on Government funding.

The latest list of new ‘Free Schools’ to be given government funding does not include the bid for the Stroud Academy

    Hi Helen,
    Yes, for now – this is the current tranche. But Cameron seems to be talking about 500 MORE free schools if the Tories get back in. So a battle won, but the war not yet won … C.

    Well done Helen for sticking to your campaign to stop steiner in Stroud – your persistence has kept the debate alive and has meant that people have had to face up to the fact that steiner is just nasty nonsense that has no place in our education system. Keep going!

    • we escaped!

      We echo Anon’s comment. Well done Helen, your blog has helped to raise awareness of the true nature of steiner education.

    Helen, that’s great news. Your work here has really helped to expose many of the problems with the Steiner ethos. This is a really well run and informed site and let’s hope it has done its job. :-)

    Now lets see those parents who thought that Steiner School will ‘save’ their children, get more involved through the local schools PTA, and stop passing the buck, about why their children are suffering, and put as much energy into helping, the great schools and teachers we have already. Support your local community schools, and stop infecting your kids with wishy washy ideas. Then you will see them grow stronger than you are, if you’re not afraid of that.

    Celebration at this good news.

    Omg this is such good news! Many congrats, Helen – one less anthroposophy cult institution in the world, it means more than you can know.
