Waldorf Education is Anti-Intellectual?

News to me. Rather than give an abstract response, let me tell you about my graduating class, Waldorf School of Garden City, 1980, all 18 of us.

Two of us have PhDs, one in biotech and one in history.
Three of us are MDs, including two cardiologists.
Three of us are lawyers, including one who attended Harvard Law.
Five are in business, including a CEO of a video technology company and at least two corporate vice-presidents.
One more is a hospital administrator.
One is a professional fundraiser for a large foundation.
One is a social worker.
One is a world-famous musician.
And one, I just don’t know what happened to her.
