Race To Nowhere Screenings
High stakes testing brings heavy consequences, according to the film documentary “Race to Nowhere.”
“Cheating is commonplace, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and ironically, young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired,” according to the film’s producers.
In an effort to spark a dialogue on how to prepare our children for the future without all the collateral damage, the Oklahoma Education Association will host free screenings of this important film on February 28 in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. A panel discussion will take place at both venues as well.
The Oklahoma City screening will begin at 6 p.m. at the Moore Norman Technology Center’s Franklin Road Campus, 4701 12th Avenue NW in north Norman. The panel discussion will follow at 7:45 p.m.
In Tulsa, the Circle Cinema, 10 S. Lewis Ave., is donating its theater for two screenings, at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. A panel discussion will be held between showings, from 7:10-7:50 p.m. TulsaKids Magazine is a cosponsor of the Tulsa event.
