As for the Waldorf/Steiner philosophy, I think a lot of the practices are good and appealing, but others not so much...the underpinnings are coo coo for cocoa puffs. (I've put 2 kids through 2 years each of Waldorf pre-school/kindergarten, FWIW) The older one didn't get any reading instruction at Waldorf, but blossomed in public kidnergarten...At age 9 she has read more books than I have in 4 decades.

I did discover that while speech is a natural process, language is a symbolic-based activity that isn't innate.
If I understand what you are saying, I don't think there is a consensus on this. Chomsky is a langue nativist, for example.

Another retarded article on college degrees,
agree that some of the supporting evidence is bunk, but the assertion may have some merit. If you are going to major in the humanities, surely some majors are better than others. I'd like to see median salary after 10 years for various majors. I wouldn't be surprised if philosophy is better than art history...eh?
