Northeastern State University’s Center for Teaching & Learning will host two screenings of the documentary Race to Nowhere in early February.

Each event is free and open to the public.

The first screening will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, February 7th in the Webb Auditorium on the Tahlequah campus. Reserve free tickets for the TQ screening at http://rtnnsutahlequah.eventbrite.com/

The second screening will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 10th in the Broken Arrow Auditorium on the Broken Arrow campus. Reserve free tickets for the BA screening at http://rtnnsubrokenarrow.eventbrite.com/

Following the 90-minute movie, students and educators will join in a discussion of contemporary education and the cultivation of creativity in schools.

According to the publisher, “Race to Nowhere is the only film that shows what is actually happening to our kids as a result of current policies and practices obsessed with testing, performance and competition rather than meaningful teaching and learning.”
