Here’s the press release from Carolina Day:
MAY 22 FILM SCREENING AND PANEL DISCUSSION TO CHALLENGE CURRENT STATE OF EDUCATION
Families and education professionals in the Asheville area are invited to a special screening of “The Race to Nowhere– The Dark Side of America’s Achievement Culture” (which was recently named as one of “10 Education Documentaries You Don’t Want to Miss”) and panel discussion about the future of education.
The film and discussion will challenge the current thinking about how America prepares students for success. As many schools across the nation see cheating becoming commonplace, students becoming disengaged and experiencing burn out, and young people arriving in the workplace unprepared and uninspired – Asheville education leaders will share insights about how we can better prepare students for 21st century careers that don’t even exist yet and help students to develop skills that are transferable in all life situations. This event is part of the grassroots movement for the transformation of education.
WHAT: Film screening and panel discussion about the future state of education
WHO: Conversation with Asheville education leaders and local families
WHEN: Wednesday, May 22, 2013 from 6:30-8:30pm
WHERE: Carolina Day’s Upper School Auditorium, 1345 Hendersonville Road, Asheville, NC 28003
