Stanford researchers release study of Alice Birney’s educational approach

A recently released research study of Alice Birney Public Waldorf eK-8 School concludes that the school is a “powerful example of an alternative educational approach within a public system.”

The study, “Growing a Waldorf-Inspired Approach in a Public School District,” was conducted by the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education. The report was written by researchers Diane Friedlaender, Kyle Beckham, Xinhua Zheng and Linda Darling-Hammond.

SCUSD’s two other Walfdorf public schools — AM Winn eK-8 and George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science — are also discussed in the report.
