Free Screening of "Race to Nowhere" Documentary Nov. 4

The Watershed School is sponsoring a free screening of the national documentary "Race to Nowhere" on November 4, 2010 at 7:00pm at the Backdoor Theater in Nederland.

It will be followed by a short panel discussion led by Boulder County educators. This documentary is about the pressure our culture puts on students and the detrimental effects of that pressure on young people today. Race to Nowhere is a call to action for 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. Please contact your school community to let them know about this important film! Initial reactions from teachers and parents alike indicate this film is "not to miss". You can view the trailer and more information at Race to Nowhere website.
