The Race to Nowhere

I just got back from seeing the movie the Race to Nowhere.  This is a must see for all administrators.  A lot of things we do in education have very negative consequences and this movie highlights this.  I don’t think we need to lower our expectations but we need to make education goals realistic.  Teaching to the test is happening all over the place.  We all know that teaching to the test is an ineffective way to learn and retain information but the government and states have tied school systems hands across the country.  Everyone is so worried about measuring success that kids are stressed out and missing out.
