Yep there is Steiner education going on in our state school system. I have known about this for some time. Someone I knew did the course and became a Steiner teacher.
I first met them back in the 1970s and they were off with the fairies quite literally. Well they are still off and have brought their mad ideas to main stream schooling.
Rudolf Steiner had some very strange ideas, including thinking white people were more intelligent than black, and that there are fairies.
I used to see an image of a Germanic boy scout [Grown up] with hairy knobbly knees singing mad tunes and talking rubbish.
If you want to hear more about Steiner being taught in our Victorian State school system try the ABC Religion report.
