Race to Nowhere:

Called a "must-see movie" by The New York Times, Race to Nowhere exposes a silent epidemic plaguing America's schools. The one-hour documentary features the heartbreaking stories of students pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing and the relentless pressure to achieve, and shines a light on the price that achievement-obsessed kids pay for this "race to nowhere." Mother turned filmmaker Vicki Abeles chronicles her own family's intense schedule, taking viewers on an intimate journey into the center of the daily struggle to balance academic commitments and cultural expectations with healthy personal needs. From nights doing homework at the dinner table, to the desks of education and child psychology experts, Race to Nowhere explores whether the current education system properly prepares students to think and work independently, creatively and collaboratively.
