This Thursday 4/12 – See “Race to Nowhere”, a documentary about the unintended consequences of “No Child Left Behind/Race to the Top” education policies

Aloha Kakou –

Hawaiʻi Peace and Justice is cosponsoring a showing of the film “Race to Nowhere” is a documentary exposing the legacy & unintended consequences of “No Child Left Behind/Race to the Top” education policies, particularly through the viewpoint of students & teachers.

This film is being hosted by a Student Allied Voices for Education (SAVE), a grassroots student coalition- and its intent is to draw in more student supporters of a student voice in education policy.  While the governor, legislators, teacher unions & public-at-large battle over redefining education terms, these students feel completely left out, yet bare the costs of decisions made far from the classroom.  There will be a short student townhall talkstory after the film, but everyone- teachers, parents, admin, counselors & the larger community are invited to this free event.

Just in case the flyer doesn’t work out, or you cannot read the following message, here are the basics:  this Thursday, 4/12, doors open 5, program starts 5:30. Free/donations accepted. Light snacks provided.   ore info:  www.racetonowhere.com (includes trailer); 808-554-2353; student.voice.hi@gmail.com
