The McClure Middle School PTSA invites you to attend the screening of Race to Nowhere, a documentary born out of concern that "families, teachers and children were wrestling with a silent epidemic of school stress and academic burnout." Filmmaker Vicki Abeles "was moved to pick up a camera and begin what would become a two-year investigation into the nationwide problem of America's pressure-cooker culture and education system-and the dangerous toll it takes on children and their families.....Premiering in 2009, the finished film, "Race to Nowhere" has since been screened in more than 6,000 schools, universities, cinemas, hospitals, corporations, education and health conferences and community centers across the US, to a cumulative audience of more than one million."
The event is free, and advance registration is helpful but not necessary.
We hope you - and your children - will join us. Please forward this email to friends, family and interested community members.
