The Children’s School to show ‘Race to Nowhere’

The Children’s School will host a screening of “Race to Nowhere,” a documentary about the pressures on today’s students in an achievement-obsessed culture at 7 p.m. on March 10.

Here’s what the film’s website says: “Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids, the film points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.”

Tickets to the The Children’s School screening are available on the “Race to Nowhere” tickets website rtnchildrensschool.eventbrite.com/.

Pre-sale tickets will be available for $10 and tickets will be $15 at the door if any are available. There are a limited number of seats available, so purchase your tickets as soon as possible.
