Summary
Race to Nowhere is an award-winning documentary that highlights the unintended consequences of our pressure-cooker culture and education system. A concerned mother-turned-filmaker aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children's lives. Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing and the relentless pressure to achieve; 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 children. Race to Nowhere 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. An eye-opening call to action, the film challenges our deepest-held assumptions about how we can best prepare young people for the future
