Look for this feature every Wednesday, and help us build it with your own picks. 

Race to Nowhere Screening

 March 3, 2011 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at , 36 Westledge Rd, West Simsbury, CT 06092

Why go? A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children’s lives. This remarkable new film shines a light on the price young people pay for this “race to nowhere.” High-stakes testing has replaced meaningful teaching and learning. Cheating is commonplace. Stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant. Many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.
