I dare you.....
...to take a few minutes to go to this link, watch the trailer and see this film.
Last night I was afforded the privilege of seeing a screening of Race to Nowhere. We ended up on the front row and as a bonus got to sit near the director and have a few minutes one on one time with her. What an inspiring parent.
In a nutshell, it's no surprise to any of you that most of us are parenting kids who are running on a hamster wheel--but not only are the kids, but we the parents are too. (hmmmmm--what's wrong with this picture?)
I would encourage each of you to send this link to any educator and parent you know. This is a film which can't help but make you want to join in or start a grassroots movement in your community schools. I am working to get a screening for our school and neighborhood as we speak.
Please take 10 minutes on this. You'll be hearing more from me.
