The South Windsor High School Parent Advisory Council will be hosting a screening of the documentary "Race to Nowhere" on Wednesday, May 11, at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium.
This hard-hitting documentary features the stories of students, parents and teachers alike who are suffering from the unhealthy pressures in today’s schools. Per the film's website, “'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.”
This community screening is open to the public and may sell out. Tickets must be purchased via the website racetonowhere.com/epostcard/4854. Tickets are $10, plus a $1.54 handling fee.
By using the firm as a centerpiece for raising awareness, it is hoped that a community discussion will prompt eventual changes. After the film, there will be a panel discussion and a Q&A facilitated by South Windsor High School Principal Daniel Sullivan.
