"Race to Nowhere" shown at Cedar Ridge High School

Cedar Ridge High School is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a screening of “Race to Nowhere,” on Tuesday, March 22, at 7 p.m. “Race to Nowhere” is a film being used to mobilize families, educators and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright and contributing citizens.

A concerned mother-turned-filmmaker aims her camera at the high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools, society and our children’s lives, creating disengaged and stressed-out youth. "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.

This documentary film, which is shown by sponsorship only, will come to Hillsborough on March 22 at the Cedar Ridge High School Auditorium. Tickets are $10 sold in advance at http://www.racetonowhere.com/epostcard/4494. If tickets remain, they will be $15 at the door. After the film, we will hear comments from a panel of experts taking written questions from the audience.

Sponsored by the CRHS PTSO and Choral Boosters. More information can be found at www.racetonowhere.com or by e-mailing crhs_ptso@yahoo.com.
