Is the U.S. education system outdated? “Most Likely to Succeed,” an edu-documentary by Greg Whiteley, takes a closer look at the role of education in 21st Century America. By telling the story of a revolutionary school in San Diego, the documentary begs the question: what educational environment is most likely to succeed today?
Arkansas-based education venture, Noble Impact, will screen “Most Likely to Succeed” at the Ron Robinson Theater on Thursday, November 19 at 7 p.m.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. The panel will include the film’s executive producer, Ted Dintersmith; Debbie Jones, assistant commissioner at the Arkansas Department of Education; David Rainey of the Forward Arkansas Steering Committee and former superintendent, and Benji Hardy of the Arkansas Times.
An official selection of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival and Seattle International Film Festival, the film promises that viewers will “never look at school the same way again.”
The event is free and open to the public. RSVP here.
