About "Sole Responsibilty"
This book takes a critical look at how Waldorf Schools are run and reveals the weaknesses: not enough responsibility, too much untapped potential, too ineffective. But the book also contains success stories, using a new approach. It points the way to genuine responsibility and high effectivity, it tells how parents and pupils can have real participation in running the school and it develops a clear picture of what “running a school” means, as opposed to simple “administration.”
Valentin Wember studied philosophy, literature, music and science of education in Hamburg, Berlin and Stuttgart. For 28 years, Wember worked with great conviction and enthusiasm as a Waldorf teacher in Stuttgart and Tübingen.
He also worked in teacher training in the USA, Switzerland and Germany. Along with being a Waldorf teacher, Wember has worked for many years in organization development, e.g. for a large South-German trade association, with the emphasis on forms of management and change management. „Sole Responsibility“ was sold out in Germany after 9 months.
