Charlottesville High School PTO sponsors a screening of the nationally acclaimed documentary film Race to Nowhere at Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center. The film focuses on pressures faced by schoolchildren and their teachers in a culture obsessed with achievement, competition, and the pressure to perform and points to a silent epidemic in our schools: disengaged students, stress-related illness, depression and burnout, cheating, and young people arriving at college and the workplace unprepared or uninspired. A panel discussion with experts on education, child psychology, and college admissions will follow the screening. This film is for parents, educators, and anyone interested in children and education. Tickets can be purchased online at a discount, or at the door.1400 Melbourne Rd. 295-2676.
