The allegations come as more and more children attend Steiner schools, with the education movement celebrating 50 years since the first school was set up in Australia. There are now more than 44 private Steiner schools across the country, 10 programs in government-run schools and it is one of the fastest-growing education movements in the world.

But as Steiner moves into the state education system in Victoria, Queensland and South Australia, questions are being raised about the alternative approach.

Critics say that its philosophical basis is too religious -- even comparing it to Scientology -- to be in the secular public system.
