Upcoming Documentary–Race to Nowhere

A few months ago, I wrote about an upcoming documentary which was tentatively called Slipping Behind. The film, which looks at the fact-paced, high-stress lives of many of today’s students, is now called Race to Nowhere and you can view the trailer here. You can pre-order the film here or set up a screening. Let me know what you think of the trailer by posting a comment.

I think it’s going to be the perfect way to either start, or supplement, a conversation in your community, so be sure to spread the word. FULL DISCLOSURE: I am an Advisor to the film and I appear in it as well.

  1. I saw the movie preview in New York City on Wednesday and was blown away! I don’t have any children, but I totally identified with the kids in the movie – My parents pushed us and 100% was never good enough – My brother graduated high school and went to West Point and is now a Major in the army, whereas I was appointed to Annapolis but declined because I had had enough. I do hope that they change the system – Kids need to be able to be kids – My hats off to everyone involved to change this highly flawed system.
