EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- The PTAs of Eastchester High School, Middle School and SEPTA are screening the recent Sundance Film Festival Official 2015 Selection “Most Likely to Succeed" on Wednesday, Nov.18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorium at Anne Hutchinson School in Eastchester.
All members of the community are invited to attend. This film is a look at education in the 21st century. It discusses the reinvention of the approach to education from the model set forth in the year 1893.
Director Greg Whiteley examines just about everything you know about education and asks you to question it. He followed two groups of ninth-graders at High Tech High in San Diego on a yearlong project that crossed disciplines and combined what is normally taught by different teachers in different classrooms at a school in San Diego. While charting a history of the American education system, the film offers how we should reimagine our educational system.
"The 21st century is going to be all about building, creating, and innovation. This remarkable film shows a path of how we can empower all of our children to do that.” – Sal Khan, Khan Academy. Watch the film trailer here .
