Coming to a school near you this Fall....."Race to Nowhere." Through the screening of "Race to Nowhere" and a panel discussion, you will be challenged to think about how we will keep our children academically, socially, and emotionally healthy for the 2016-2017 school year.
"Race to Nowhere", an award winning film by Vicki Abeles that has been screened all over the country, points to the silent epidemic in our schools in which students are pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing and the relentless pressure to achieve. Through heartbreaking stories of students, the testimony of educators, parents and education experts, "Race to Nowhere" reveals an education system in which 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.
We hope you will join us and other parents, educators, and experts for this very special evening of discussion and partnership on how our communities can best keep our youth healthy for this upcoming school year.
The location for this event is To Be Determined. We are open to screening "Race to Nowhere" in multiple Kansas locations. We will announce the event locations once we determine Registration numbers and Registrant locations.
7:00pm - 8:30pm: Screening of "Race to Nowhere"
8:30pm - 9:00pm: Panel discussion with parents, educators, and experts
9:30pm: Post Event Reception (Location(s) TBD)
