Get your tickets for this one before they sell out:

A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children's lives. 
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.
Tuesday, April 12, from 6 PM to 8 PM at
United Teachers of New Orleans (UTNO) Headquarters Oak Park Shopping Center
4718 Paris Ave (corner of Mirabeau) New Orleans LA
