High School Stress, College Admission, and the Race to Nowhere


I had a great conversation with a very down-to-earth mother of a client this morning. She was communicating her frustration that her high school aged children were stressed out, worried, and feeling over-programmed.
She also recommended looking at a film called ““Race to Nowhere”. I looked at the trailer, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the film or to schedule a screening.
As a parent and as a college counselor, I can tell you that these trends highlighted in the film are very real.
Have a look a the trailer and let me know what you think.  I especially want to hear from students!
