Race to Nowhere Screening
A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and out children’s lives.
This remarkable new film shines a light on the price young people pay for this “race to nowhere.” High-stakes testing has replaced meaningful teaching and learning. Cheating is commonplace. Stress-realted illness, depression and burnout are rampant. Many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.
Attend a screening and become part of the grassroots phenomenon that is feeding a groundswell for change.
