BETHESDA, Md (March 28, 2011) – On Thursday, April 7, 2011, Suburban Hospital and YMCA Youth and Family Services will host a special movie screening of “Race to Nowhere: The Dark Side of America’s Achievement Culture” from 6:45pm – 9:00pm in the Suburban Hospital Auditorium. 

 

 “Race to Nowhere” features the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids. The film points to the silent epidemic in our schools: Cheating is commonplace; students have become disengaged; depression, and burnout are rampant; and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

 

Proceeds fund the prevention services of YMCA Youth & Family Services. Traduccion al Espanol disponible. To register, go to www.racetonowhere.com/epostcard/4272. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Registration begins at 6:30pm.
