ParentMap: ‘Beyond Measure’ — Screening (Mercer Island)


Thursday, November 10, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

This event has expired.

ParentMap, in partnership with SIFF, Stroum Jewish Community Center and Reel Link Films are proud to present Beyond Measure.
Every day we hear stories about how to fix America's troubled education system: narrow our curricula, standardize our classrooms, find new ways to measure students and teachers. But what if these “fixes” are making our schools worse?
Rather than ask why our students fail to measure up, Beyond Measure asks us to reconsider the greater purpose of education. What if our education system valued personal growth over test scores? Put inquiry over mimicry? Encouraged passion over rankings? What if we decided that the higher aim of school was not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student?
Beyond Measure offers a positive picture of what’s possible in American education when communities decide they are ready for change.
