Race to Nowhere!

Don’t forget tonight’s free screening of the film “Race to Nowhere.”  

“This remarkable new film shines a light on the price young people pay for this ‘race to nowhere.’   High stakes testing has replaced meaningful teaching and learning.  Cheating is commonplace.  Stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant.  Many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.”  (Text from promotional materials.)

This event is free and open to the public and while registration is preferred (http://www.racetonowhere.com/epostcard/3983), no one will be turned away at the door.

Following the film there will be a discussion panel comprised of the following individuals:

  • Lucky Lamons, President & CEO of Tulsa Foundation for Schools
  • Ashley Bowser, Broken Arrow Public High School Teacher
  • Sheila Hayden, Broken Arrow Public High School Teacher
  • Alex Adkins, Broken Arrow Public High School Student
  • Ricky Mason, Broken Arrow Public High School Student
  • Christian Stout, Broken Arrow Public High School Student (Alternate)
  • Alex Walker, Broken Arrow Public High School Student (Alternate)

Many thanks to Derek Blackburn (Broken Arrow High School Principal) for helping to coordinate our panelists.

So please join us tonight, at 7 PM, at the NSU Broken Arrow Auditorium (in the Administrative Services Building).

And, mark your calendars for the next film screening event: “Waiting for Superman,” Thursday, March 10, 2011, at 7 PM, at the NSU Broken Arrow Auditorium.
