Our school system was designed in 1893…[it]…was perfectly designed…to prepare workers for routine jobs that no longer exist. As we try to out-drill and out-test Korea we are leaving millions of young adults ill-prepared, uninspired and lacking the skills they need to thrive in an innovation economy. After seeing this film, you’ll never look at school the same way again.
Principal Jennifer Price, the Newton North PTSO, and the Newton North School Council invite you to a special screening of “Most Likely to Succeed,” an acclaimed documentary about the American educational system. If you have been getting up to speed on growth mindset this year, you will find this movie of particular interest!
The movie will be preceded by a brief vote to approve the PTSO’s budget and officers for 2015-16. The movie will be followed by a brief Q&A.
