Race to Nowhere Screening & Discussion
January 21 :: Friday :: 7:30pm
Space12 will be hosing the screening of “Race to Nowhere” on Friday, January 21 at 7:30PM. Make plans to attend this important feature and join in on a panel discussion following the film.
Date: Friday, January 21
Cost: $10 online and $15 at the door
Billed by many in the press as the film that exposes the truth about our nation’s schools that “Waiting for Superman” glossed over, “Race to Nowhere” shines a light on the price our kids pay for the culture of hollow achievement and pressure to perform that has invaded Americaʼs schools – a “race to nowhere”. The film is a call to families, educators, experts and policy makers to examine current assumptions on how to best prepare our youth to become the healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens in the 21st century.
After the screening, please join us for a powerful discussion with two thinkers who have been heavily involved in educational reform in Texas: Dr. Angela Valenzuela, Director of the Texas Center for Educational Policy and author of “Subtractive Schooling: U.S. Mexican Youth and the Politics of Caring” and “Leaving Children Behind: How Texas-style Accountability Fails Latino Youth“, and Dr. Kevin Foster, director of the Institute for Community, University and School Partnerships (ICUSP).
