A Documentary Screening and Dialogue
I got in the email today an invitation from my daughter's school for a screening of this documentary.
Well time, someone address the outdate school system when everything around us has changed so significantly in just one generation. My daughter's learning involved so much technology. She turns in her homework all online. She checks her grades online. She records her oral Chinese homework presentation on her computer and sends to her teacher. I didn't have any of that.
Speaking of changes and obsolete, her school just closed down 2 library donated tons of good books, which include loads of information-filled encyclopedia, which I doubt my daughter has ever read one.
Here's what the documentary Most Likely to Succeed is about:
For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary, “Most Likely to Succeed,” examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in today's innovative world. This film is directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley and is an official selection of many of the nation's top film festivals, including the prestigious 2015 Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.
“a smart and engaging look at education in the 21st century” – The Hollywood Reporter.
