“RACE TO NOWHERE” is a close-up look at the pressures on today’s students,
offering an intimate view of lives packed with activities, leaving little
room for down-time or family time. Parents today are expected to raise
high-achieving children, who are good at everything: academics, sports, the
arts, community-service. The film tackles the tragic side of our often
achievement-obsessed culture, with interviews that explore the hidden world
of over-burdened schedules, student suicide, academic cheating, young people
who have checked out. “RACE TO NOWHERE” asks the question: Are the young
people of today prepared to step fully and productively into their future?
We hear from students who feel they are being pushed to the brink, educators
who worry students aren’t learning anything substantive, and college
professors and business leaders, concerned their incoming employees lack the
skills needed to succeed in the business world: passion, creativity, and
internal motivation.
