“Beyond Measure” Screening

“Beyond Measure” Presented by Little Owl Preschool, Intellectual Virtues Academy & Maple Village Waldorf School
Thursday, February 25, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PST)
In Race to Nowhere, director Vicki Abeles unveiled the dark side of America’s achievement culture. In her follow up, Beyond Measure, Abeles shows what’s possible in education when we trust in the ingenuity of students, parents, and teachers. Communities transform education by putting research and proven, innovative models into practice.
From rural Kentucky to New York City, we spotlight schools that are breaking away from our outmoded, test-driven education culture and pioneering a new vision for our classrooms.
Beyond Measure fills a void that too many other education stories have left empty: a positive picture of what’s innovative and possible in American education when communities decide they are ready for change. In chorus with experts including Sir Ken Robinson, Linda Darling-Hammond, Yong Zhao, Alison Gopnik, and Daniel Pink, the change makers in Beyond Measure prove that a new vision and a higher purpose are possible for American education.
