"Race to Nowhere" Screening

Race to NowhereFremont Education Foundation, the City of Fremont Human Relations Commission and the Fremont Unified District Teachers Association joined together to bring the documentary film, “Race to Nowhere,” to Fremont on Saturday, May 21st for two screenings at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm, in the Anderson Auditorium located at Washington West, 2500 Mowry Avenue.

“Race to Nowhere” is the only film to show the toll on the well-being of our children resulting from ever-increasing pressure to achieve as reflected in current national policies and practices obsessed with testing, performance and competition at the expense of meaningful teaching and learning. This film spotlights the intersection of health and education that calls all members of our community to action to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to be healthy, bright, engaged and leading citizens.

FUSD Superintendent, Dr. Jim Morris, facilitated a discussion following the 2:00 pm screening. A moderated panel discussion followed the 7:00 pm screening. Panelists from Washington Hospital, Fremont Youth and Family Services, a FUSD academic counselor and a FUSD high school student were invited to appear.
