6:45 pm Film Screening: “Most Likely to Succeed”
Watch a documentary film that examines the history of education in the United States and challenges communities to adopt innovative new approaches to teaching and learning.
The film explores questions of how to modernize an educational system that was developed more than a century ago during the rise of the Industrial Age. The documentary profiles a school in San Diego that is completely rethinking what the experience of going to school looks like and follows students, parents and teachers through a truly unorthodox school experience, asking audiences to consider what sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century.
The district is presenting the film to the community as part of an educational visioning process, which includes input from parents, students, educators, community members and other stakeholders.
