Whether you think it is sensational or right on, this movie will have educators, parents, and students talking. I've found typically the answers are somewhere in the middle where the wise minds meet, however, take a preview of the trailer for Race to Nowhere which will be screened September 30 and October 4. If you go to the website, you can request to participate in the screening or see the schools that have requested to participate. (Some are doing it as a fundraiser.) It does make me nervous scheduling a screening without having seen it, however, they are releasing a facilitator's guide that you can review.
