If you missed the chance to see Race To Nowhere when we premiered it at Chicago Waldorf School last Fall, you have another chance to see this wonderful film that is being screened at Loyola University this Thursday March 3 at 7:00PM .
Race To Nowhere is a new film—produced by concerned parents—that examines the culture of hollow achievement and pressure to perform that has invaded America’s schools. This film examines the price our kids pay for this “race to nowhere,” where cheating is commonplace, and stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant.
Featuring the stories of young people who have been pushed to the brink and educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills needed for the global economy, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic running rampant in our schools. Race To Nowhere is a call to families, educators, experts and policy makers to examine current assumptions of how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright contributors and leading citizens in the 21st century.
Join us as we view this documentary and discuss important educational concerns shared by parents, college students, teachers, principals, counselors, and future educators.
