NKHS to screen controversial film

The Jamestown Education Foundation will host a screening of the film “Race to Nowhere: The Dark Side of America’s Achievement Culture” on Monday, May 16 at 7 p.m. at North Kingstown High School.

The controversial documentary explores the “high-pressure, highstakes culture that has invaded our schools and children’s lives, creating unhealthy, disengaged, unprepared and stressed-out youth.”

It is estimated that over half a million people have attended over 1800 screenings of this film, which has received attention from national media including, CNN, The New York Times, PBS, Katie Couric and The Washington Post.

Tickets purchased online at racetonowhere.com/epostcard/ 4880 are $10 and tickets purchased at the door are $15.
