know whether I believe this to be a good or bad thing.

I went to the first ever Waldorf School in my final year (15-16 years of ag=
e) and I was quite blown away by the facilities and what the students achie=
ve there! Every child had built typically either a guitar or violin in word=
-working classes by I think it was age 14 (might have been 12.) The child I=
stayed with had built a boat we went sailing in! Quite amazing really!!
