An inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of — if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals. Once the envy of the world, the American educational system produced an unmatched workforce tailored for the 20th century. But as the global economy has shifted through the past 20 years, the United States has clung to an obsolete education model with an emphasis on teaching to the test, leaving our students woefully unprepared for 21st century employment and disillusioning teachers. This new feature-length documentary, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, examines the shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s changing world and explores compelling new approaches that aim to transform learning as we know it.
