Studies conducted by Stanford University professors have shown what some parents have felt for years – that children are so overwhelmed with exorbitant amounts of school work that they become depressed, disinterested and unprepared for future life in college and the workplace.
This very serious issue, which is affecting our nation’s students in “epidemic” numbers, is the focus of the film, “Race to Nowhere,” a documentary by a mom turned filmmaker who highlights the “high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children’s lives.”
The powerful film will be shown at Indian Hills High School auditorium on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m., followed by a discussion led by child psychologist Dr. John A. Caliso, Director of Special Services. Parents, instructors and concerned residents are invited to attend. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
The event is sponsored by the Franklin Lakes PTA. Those interested in attending can register here, or send a check made to CRS PTA to Amy Collins, 780 Apple Ridge Rd., Franklin Lakes, N.J. 07417.
