Race To Nowhere Followup Meeting On Hold But Discussion Continues Online
As those who have seen or heard about Race to Nowhere know, the film focuses a great deal on the fact that our students are over-scheduled. Ironically, our followup meeting originally scheduled for tonight had to be postponed again due to a few different schedule conflicts.
Despite this, we do not want the discussion and brainstorming to end. In order to keep the conversation going, we have started a Facebook page for continued discussion of this film and the implications for our schools. Please share your thoughts, links, and related articles on this site so that we can keep the conversation flowing for our first followup meeting in the Fall.
We plan on holding numerous meetings to keep this conversation ongoing as we continue to prioritize what the focal points should be for Burlington as we look at school reform initiatives.
