Race to Nowhere film screening

Join us at the viewing of the documentary "Race to Nowhere." This film takes a close up view of the current educational system, its current priorities and the consequential pressure placed on our school children.

Race to Nowhere is a call to action for families, educators, and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens.

    Loved meeting other parents and students who are concerned about our schools, and talking about developmental education and the problem of TESTS!
