'Race to Nowhere' showing set for Feb. 15

Reservations limited to first 200.

The Montessori School of Lake Forest will host a free showing of the award winning film, “Race to Nowhere,” at 7 p.m. Feb. 15 at the school, 13700 W. Laurel Drive.

Reservations are being taken at (847) 918-1000, and space is limited to the first 200 guests. 

“Race to Nowhere” is a film created by a concerned mother who “aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children’s lives, according to the film's website.

"Race to Nowhere" points to the silent epidemic in schools: cheating has become commonplace; students are disengaged; stress-related illness and depression are rampant; and many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired. "Race to Nowhere" is a call to action for families, educators, and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens.
