I have written on education reform multiple times. It is no secret that I am not a fan of the current American education system, the decrease in free time for children, excessive homework, and the fast track that many parents are putting their children on.
I am really excited to see the upcoming documentary, Race to Nowhere. I hope the medium of film will help raise America’s consciousness, since nothing else to date seems to have spurred any kind of serious cry for reform or given people pause to the adulteration of childhood that is acceptable in today’s society.
Here are a few of my related posts that you might find interesting:
Childhood comes but once, and it short and should be filled with magic and the love of learning. I hope we as a society can take steps to move the pendulum back in that direction.
Are you planning on seeing the documentary?
