Race to Nowhere

Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Race to Nowhere Film Screening Race to Nowhere Film Screening
"Race to Nowhere" is a film that calls us to challenge current thinking about how we prepare our children for success. 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. "

Following the film, a panel will speak and lead discussion and Q&A, including:
John Boshoven, Counselor Emeritas and Co-Chair of AAPS Counseling Department

Patricia Manley, Trustee, Board of Education, Ann Arbor Public Schools

Todd Sevig, Director, Counseling and Psychological Services, University of Michigan
