About the film "Race to Nowhere" explores the challenges some students face as they compete in the test-driven, pressure-packed academic environment that exists at many schools today. We hear from students who feel they are being pushed to the brink, educators who worry that students aren't learning anything substantive, and college professors and business leaders who are concerned that some younger employees lack the passion, creativity, and internal motivation to succeed. "Race to Nowhere" is a call to mobilize families, educators, and policymakers to challenge current assumptions about how best to prepare American children to become healthy, contributing and leading citizens.
