Adopted Declaration of British Columbia Waldorf Schools

British Columbia Waldorf Schools have, since their inception, espoused principles of respect for human rights and the diversity of humankind.  Today, all British Columbia Waldorf schools continue to define diversity as a range of racial identifications, ancestries, nationalities, native languages, socioeconomic backgrounds, family structures, ages, belief systems, gender and sexual identities, abilities, appearances, occupations, and political affiliations. Enhancing our diversity is a journey of both moral and educational importance and a learning and growth experience for our whole community.
