Film Talk: Race to Nowhere, with Vicki Abeles & Ellie Drago-Severson

Race to Nowhere is a film that calls us to challenge current thinking about how we prepare our children for success. Named by TakePart.com as one of “10 Education Documentaries You Don’t Want to Miss”, “Race to Nowhere” brings communities together to spark dialogue and galvanize change in America’s schools.

Featuring the heartbreaking stories of students across the country who have been pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing and the relentless pressure to achieve, “Race to Nowhere” points to a silent epidemic in our schools. Through the testimony of educators, parents and education experts, it reveals an education system in which cheating has become commonplace; students have become disengaged; stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant; and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

Shown nationwide and internationally in more than 7,000 schools, universities, cinemas, hospitals, corporations and community centers, “Race to Nowhere” has become the centerpiece of a nationwide, grassroots movement for the transformation of education.” –RTN
Please join us for a screening and discussion with producer and co-film director Vicki Abeles and Dr.Elllie Drago-Severson, Professor of Education at Teachers College, Columbia University.”

Florida Atlantic Professor of Educational Leadership and Research Methodology Dr. Ira Bogotch applauds his interactions with Dr. Ellie Drago-Severosn and her work:

“Ellie travels the world with a focus on practitioners. Her articles and books emerge from her work with these practitioners in both large and small settings. In some ways, her scholarship is not typical of other professors; nor does she write in a typically obtuse fashion. Ellie does professional development which drives her research agenda in adult learning and school leadership. She interacts with more practitioners in a single year than most professors, I’m guessing, do in a decade. And what’s even more amazing is that if professors would actually try her developmental constructivist ideas on their own teaching and learning practices, there would be immediate results.”
