Milton hosts 'Race to Nowhere' showing


Documentary highlights 'high-pressure' schooling



March 26, 2014
MILTON, Ga. – The Milton Community Alliance for Mental Wellness is sponsoring a viewing of "Race to Nowhere," a must-see documentary for every parent raising school-aged children in the North Fulton community.

"Race to Nowhere" is an award-winning documentary that highlights the unintended consequences of the pressure-cooker culture. It features the heartbreaking stories of students across the country, revealing an education system in which overall workload and achievement expectations have become unreasonable and unmanageable. As a result, cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, anxiety, depression and burnout are rampant and young people are arriving at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

"Race to Nowhere" asks what can be done to change these results.

Two showings will be held in March – March 25 at Cambridge High School and March 30 at the Old Milton Theater.

Tickets are $10 at the door. Students and staff admitted for free.

Proceeds from the showing will go to Will to Live Foundation, a local foundation dedicated to preventing teen suicide by improving the lives and the "Will to Live" of teenagers everywhere through education about mental health and encouraging them to recognize the love and hope that exists in each other. For more information, go to www.will-to-live.org.
