Godwin to host ‘Race to Nowhere’ film, panel discussion Nov. 17

Race to Nowhere: the Dark Side of America's Achievement Culture will be shown at 7 p.m. Nov. 17 at Godwin High School. A 30-minute discussion session will be held following the film, featuring a panel that includes a student, faculty member, principal, school board member, and college admissions director.

The documentary film features stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink; of educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need; and of parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids. Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: to the cheating that has become commonplace, students who have become disengaged, and the overwhelming incidence of stress-related illness, depression and burnout.

The event is sponsored by the Godwin PTSA; any extra proceeds from ticket sales ($10 each) will benefit the PTSA. To order tickets visit http://rtngodwinhs.eventbrite.com; for information on the film (including a clip) visit http://www.racetonowhere.com/home.
