Advanced Pressure and the Race to Nowhere

The problem with Advanced Placement classes and how they are destroying the lives of high school students.

This video features students and educators from the film Race To Nowhere – a film that takes a look at education, childhood and the unintended consequences of the achievement and test obsessed way of life that permeates American education and culture. The pressure on kids is unrelenting and is creating a generation suffering from unprecedented levels of stress, depression and burnout. No wonder 2,000 kids a day drop out of high school.

There are better ways to educate for success and a lifetime of learning!
