Race to Nowhere screening

Our friends at Montessori Children's Community are sponsoring a public screening of the documentary

Race to Nowhere

on Thursday, 30 September at 7 pm
in the ballroom of the Edgeworth Club
511 East Drive, Sewickley

A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children's lives. Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace; students are disengaged; stress-related illness and depression are rampant; and many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired. 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.

Tickets: $10 in advance, $15 @ the door.
