Pediatric Associates and FIU-Herbert Wetheim College of Medicine Host a Screening of Race To Nowhere

Share Article

The documentary, Race to Nowhere, is a call to mobilize 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.

Race To Nowhere, a documentary, created by Vicki Abeles, addresses the high-pressure culture to succeed that has invaded schools and school children’s lives, and of the mental, emotional and physical effects of those pressures. It questions if society has become so focused on tests and performance that it is undermining the actual learning and creative expression in the classroom.

Pediatric Associates believes it is their responsibility to maintain and/or improve the health and well-being of its patients and to the community as a whole. With that in mind, Pediatric Associates, in conjunction with FIU’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, present Race To Nowhere to encourage conversations about how best to prepare children for a successful, productive future and what roles parents, educators, and policy makers, can all play in finding the solution.

A discussion after the movie with a panel of child/education experts will be conducted on the best ways to prepare our children for a successful, productive future and what roles parents can all play in finding the solution.
