On Tuesday, May 17th at 6:30pm Seattle Girls School and Hamlin Robinson School will present a screening of ‘Race to Nowhere‘ at HRS. A panel discussion will be held immediately after the movie.

Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our 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. This film has been said to be…
