Six years after the launch of the award-winning "Race to Nowhere," Reel Link Films has released the nationwide screening campaign of its second feature-length documentary, "Beyond Measure."
The film shines a light on what many view as the tenacious and cutting-edge alternatives to the stifling, high-pressure education system presented in "Race to Nowhere."
"Beyond Measure" weaves the stories of four public school communities across the country who are challenging the wisdom of traditional practices. The film follows these students and educators as they seek inspiration from expert research and guidance from schools on the cutting edge of educational change.
With interviews from Sir Ken Robinson, Linda Darling-Hammond,Yong Zhao, Carol Dweck, Alison Gopnik and Daniel Pink, "Beyond Measure" is a portrayal of what’s possible in American education.
After the screening, Pelham resident and author Rich Zahradnik will moderate a community discussion and Q&A with a student panel.
Tickets and the discussion are free, but registration is required here.
The film will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Picture House, 175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham, N.Y.
