‘Race to Nowhere’ screening in Tahoe City

Special to the Sun

TAHOE CITY, Calif. – An additional screening of the hard-hitting education documentary “Race To Nowhere” is scheduled for Tuesday, March 1, at the North Tahoe High School theater in Tahoe City, 6:30-9 p.m. Sponsored by the Excellence in Education Foundation, in partnership with Parents for Public Schools of Truckee-North Tahoe, Tahoe Truckee Education Association (TTEA) and the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. Featuring stories of young people in all types of communities who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their children. “Race to Nowhere” points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace; students are disengaged; stress-related illness and depression are rampant and many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

The film is generating conversations in communities around the nation regarding education and galvanizing change. The film is rated PG-13 and runs one hour, 25 minutes. This event is free and open to the public but please register your attendance at http://rtnnorthtahoehs.eventbrite.com/ For more information on the event, please contact Excellence in Education, 530-550-7984 exed@ttcf.net, or Leisa Peterson at 530-448-1558, ntt.parentadvocacy@yahoo.com.
