The NY Times has a whole series of articles on just this topic, "Grading the Digital School' , http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/04/technology/technology-in-schools-faces-questions-on-value.html?pagewanted=all This latest one on Waldorf schools falls along these lines.
This has been a pretty active discussion in the social neighborhoods I inhabit. There are all kinds of pro and con conversations and links, for example,on the Waldorf schools like this one being passed around: http://www.waldorfcritics.org/active/articles/Staudenmaier.html
Lots of people blogging about it…which in my opinion is a good thing, conversation, discussion, awareness, appreciation, opposition, etc. etc.
