(2015) Director: Vicki Abeles, based on her book, Beyond Measure: Rescuing An Overscheduled, Overtested, Underestimated Generation.
With: Linda Darling-Hammond, Daniel Pink, Ken Robinson, Yong Zhao, Carol Dweck.

Anyone involved in educating children – including parents – needs to see this one-time screening of a film based on a book that rejects the “trap of achievement.” From rural Kentucky to New York City, schools that are breaking away from an outmoded, test-driven education are shaping a new vision for our classrooms. Beyond Measure offers a positive picture of what’s possible when communities decide they are ready for change. Are you? 80 min.

“America, this is your wake-up call. With both heart and smarts, Vicki Abeles showcases the courageous communities that are rejecting the childhood rat race and reclaiming health and learning.” – Maria Shriver.
Sponsored by Hartford Youth Scholars, Achieve Hartford and the Blue Hills Civic Association.

This event is free and open to the public.
