• Race to Nowhere is a documentary that shines a light on the pressure that students face to get ahead in a competitive academic landscape.  I'm not exactly sure when learning turned into a competition, but that's neither here nor there...  The film aims to discuss the other side of the coin, examining the ramifications of these pressures on our student's mental health and well-being.  Many of my practices and philosophies have been influenced by the Race to Nowhere movement as I believe strongly in the development of my students as people and learners first and not products.  I also try to do what I can to create an environment that is as stress free as a math classroom can be.  Below are some links to the movie's website and I encourage you to explore them.  If anything that you see interests you, please let me know.  I'd love to talk about it!
