ConclusionThe more liberal form of education; the positive aspects

ConclusionThe adoption of positive aspects of Steiner education by other educational institutions is, to a small extent, seen through academic research and evaluation of the misconceptions of pupils regarding the Steiner system. Through the examination of what the positive and negative aspects of Steiner education are, it is ascertained that, unlike expectation due to the controversy seen across social media, there are more positive aspects in regards to a well-rounded education. Due to the little evidence found on the adoption of the Steiner education philosophy on other institutions, it can be said that Steiner education alone has not contributed to the influx of creative subjects in schools; however, in combination with the research found on the impacts of creative collaboration has been a player in the rise of a more rounded education system as seen in mainstream education today. This influence has refuted the misconceptions and controversies surrounding Steiner education, showing the system as a good alternative system of education. Through the manner of gathering data, the researchers have determined that, amongst the pupils asked, Steiner education is not as well-known as a system of education as expected. However, since the pool of data is so small, it is unlikely that this resembles the wide-spread knowledge of Steiner education and it is therefore, unreliable. Of the students questioned, the majority were given an informational text that, therefore, was the basis of their opinions for the questions in the survey. A generalization that can be determined from the data gathered, is that Steiner education is seen as a more liberal form of education; the positive aspects outweighing the negative in the eyes of students. May this investigation be repeated, the same measuring instrument would be used to gather precise data, but a larger pool of participants would be asked to take part, both students in mainstream education as well as those currently in a Steiner school. This would help to get a better overall concept of the misconceptions from those familiar with the system of education as well as those who are not. Similarly, the questions would be modified to avoid bias and questions to be filled in would be made mandatory, stating conditions that answers must follow. Though the questions were specific, the answers given varied greatly, with some students not sure of how to answer and thus should be modified so that students get a better understanding of what is being asked and can provide better feedback. The informational text given to students unaware of Steiner education would also be changed to the words of Rudolph Steiner himself, to avoid subjective views, as well as include some mission statements from Steiner schools today. In this way, the opinion of students is informed by their perspective on the text rather than by the perspective of the text.
