TONIGHT: Screening of 'Race to Nowhere' at St. Jude

ATLANTA -- All of the current interest in education has Metro Atlanta parents talking.

Tonight, St. Jude the Apostle Catholic School (7171 Glenridge Drive NE, Atlanta, 30328) will host a screening of the acclaimed film Race to Nowhere, which has created a grassroots movement that is demanding change.

A concerned mother-turned-filmmaker aimed her camera at the high-pressure culture that has invaded American schools and children's lives.

The remarkable results shine a light on the price that young people pay for this "race to nowhere."

High-stakes testing has replaced meaningful learning and teaching, cheating is commonplace, and stress-related illnesses, depression and burnout are rampant.

All of these factors lead to many young people arriving unprepared and uninspired to college and the workforce.

The screening will be at 7:15 p.m. on Monday, Mar. 21. School officials are expecting a packed house.
