Nova High School is participating in a national day of screening of the powerful film, Race to Nowhere. Race to Nowhere addresses a multitude of concerns regarding high-stakes testing and the culture of competition that has “invaded” childhood. This film shares the voices of students, families, teachers, health professionals and others, asking that we re-evaluate our methods of teaching and evaluating learning. The film has been featured on CNN and Oprah. The Washington Post says the film “is playing as a quiet counterpoint to the better-known Waiting for Superman.” This screening is open to the public.
