Middlebury, Vermont—On Wednesday, May 17, Bridge School and Middlebury Underground present a screening of the award-winning education documentary Most Likely to Succeed, followed by a dialogue about what matters most for education today.
Most Likely to Succeed profiles the origins of our current educational system, developed a century ago during the rise of the industrial age. Since that time, the world economy has transformed profoundly, but the U.S. education system has not. The film focuses on the story of a school in San Diego that is rethinking what the experience of going to school looks like. As viewers follow students, parents and teachers through a truly unorthodox school experience, the audience is forced to consider what sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century?
The purpose of this event is to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents, and students about our education system, and to discuss the challenges and opportunities related to pursuing new approaches.
At 5:30, attendees are welcome to join panelists for a casual dinner at the Marquis Southwest Café. The screening of Most Likely to Succeed begins at 6:30PM and will be followed by a panel discussion at 8:00PM, featuring national education thought-leaders and local elementary teachers.
$10 suggested donation at the door to benefit the Bridge School Scholarship Fund. This event is brought to you by Bridge School and Middlebury Underground.
