Ted Dintersmith, author of What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers Across America, will lead a discussion after the film.
Most Likely to Succeed offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers can do — if communities have courage to transform their schools. Directed by documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca and AFI DOCS. It has been featured at leading conferences on education. Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school.
In the past year, more than 3,500 communities have booked screenings of Most Likely to Succeed.
“The purpose of this event is to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents, and students about how current obstacles can be overcome and steps towards change can be taken on a local level,” school system spokeswoman Tara Helkowski wrote in a press release.”
