A free showing of Race to Nowhere is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian Church (BEPC).
Church member Melanie Norris, who brought the screening to the attention of Patch, said the documentary "will have you rethinking our education system."
The documentary, Race to Nowhere: The Dark Side of America's Achievement Culture, directed by Vicki Abeles, was shown in March to about 60 parents at Broadneck High School. The trailer to the movie is attached to this article.
Since March, there has been a push from some Broadneck community members for additional screenings.
The documentary is “a call to mobilize families, educators and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens,” according to its website.
In the movie, a high school student poses the question, “If I can’t fail, and make mistakes, then how can I be expected to learn?”
If you're free Wednesday night, be sure to swing by the church, located at 235 Bay Dale Dr. in Arnold.
