The Race to Nowhere

"You'll be inspired to make some changes, big and small, for the health of your kids." - Oprah.com

 

Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: 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.

Race to Nowhere 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.

In an effort to foster dialog following the film, Cascades Academy of Central Oregon will host a moderated discussion featuring educational experts from the community including:

Dr. Sondra Marshall, a PhD Psychologist at St. Charles Health Systems

Sanford Shapiro, an educational consultant and learning specialist

Teresa Wadden, an educational consultant specializing in college counseling for high school students

Featured in the film:

  • Dr. Madeline Levine, Clinical Psychologist and author of the best-seller, The Price of Privilege
  • Dr. Wendy Mogel, Clinical Psychologist and author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee
  • Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, Adolescent Medicine Specialist, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
  • Dr. Deborah Stipek, Dean of the School of Education at Stanford University
  • Dr. Denise Pope, Co-Founder, Challenge Success, Stanford University
  • Sara Bennett, Founder, Stop Homework
