Join Us for Showing of ‘Race to Nowhere’


VEA is screening the acclaimed documentary Race to Nowhere later this month during the Association’s Reggie Smith Organizing School at the University of Richmond (July 26-28).

The movie, which depicts the effects of test-driven schools on children and their families, will be shown at 6:15 p.m., Wednesday, July 27, 2011. The screening will be held at the Jepson Alumni Center on the campus of the University of Richmond, 6390 River Road, Richmond, VA 23229. (View Maps/Directions.)

More than 600,000 interested parents, community members, and students have seen the film in the past year. It calls into question the test- and rankings-driven culture that is pushing more students to disengage and teachers to burn out.

Registrants for the Reggie Smith Organizing School need not buy tickets for the screening. Others will need to purchase tickets online ($10 or $5 for students/faculty, plus small service fee).

A unique feature of Race to Nowhere screenings is that audience members stay after the screening to discuss the film’s implications. Additional information to help you act on the movie’s findings are available at http://www.racetonowhere.com/home and http://www.endtherace.org.
