This model is the idealistic and simplified representation of a fully incorporated Steiner/Waldorf school and the complex set of relationships within the school community. It is useful in showing that while the teaching staff and parents have defined responsibilities and roles and make differing contributions to the life of the school; they are operating within particular values systems. Parents have the freedom to embrace their own choices regarding lifestyle, beliefs and parenting practices and while these values may be informed to a greater or lesser extent by Anthroposophy.
This is representation we compiled to merge the Bronfenbrenner model and Stehlik's spheres within a Steiner school community. A Steiner child may be protected up to the Microsystem, with parents, the school and the teachers all incorporating Anthroposophical philosophies to some degree. But unfortunately the bubble can only stretch so far before the contemporary and modern influences begin to impact on the child. These are symbolised with the bright red and blue circles.
