Broward County Public Schools and the City of Parkland Present a Showing of the movie “Race to Nowhere” where filmmakers examine the stress placed on today’s young students in terms of competitiveness and over-scheduling.
Featuring the heartbreaking stories of students across the country who have been pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing and the relentless pressure to achieve, “Race to Nowhere” points to a silent epidemic in our schools. Through the testimony of educators, parents and education experts, it 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.
The movie is for parents only followed by a discussion about the impact of the topic. Register for the event here.
Movie viewing on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the PREC Center 10559 Trails End Parkland, FL 33076.
