Summer Education Documentaries by Reel Link Films

Beyond Measure, Wednesday 4 August, 2021

Imagine an education system that values personal growth over test scores. Inquiry over mimicry. Passion over rankings.

What if we decide that the purpose of school is not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student?

Meet the schools that are daring to reimagine education. And making it happen.

Race to Nowhere, Wednesday, 18 August, 2021

Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace; students are disengaged; stress-related illness and depression are rampant; and many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

Race to Nowhere is a call to action for families, educators, and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens.
