“Race to Nowhere” at Nova High School

Nova High School is participating in a national day of screening of the powerful film, Race to Nowhere. Race to Nowhere addresses a multitude of concerns regarding high-stakes testing and the culture of competition that has “invaded” childhood. This film shares the voices of students, families, teachers, health professionals and others, asking that we re-evaluate our methods of teaching and evaluating learning.  The film has been featured on CNN and Oprah. The Washington Post says the film “is playing as a quiet counterpoint to the better-known Waiting for Superman.” This screening is open to the public.

    And thank you for your kind words.

    The style that you write make it very comfortable to read. And the theme you use, wow. That is a really good combination. And I am wondering what is the name of the template you use?
