Beyond Measure: Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Beyond Measure sets out to challenge the assumptions of our current education story. Rather than ask why our students fail to measure up, this film asks us to reconsider the greater purpose of education. It looks at schools across the country that are breaking away from an outmoded, test-driven education are shaping a new vision for classrooms. Beyond Measure offers a positive picture of what’s possible in American education when communities decide they are ready for change.
