Presented in collaboration with the Vineyard Montessori School. 

vmslogoThe current educational system in the United States was developed a century ago during the rise of the industrial age and was once the envy of the world. However, the world economy has since transformed profoundly, but the US education system has not. Schools are attempting to teach and test skills, when mastered, that still leave graduates woefully unprepared for the 21st Century. After presenting this problem, the documentary focuses on the story of a school in San Diego that is completely rethinking what the experience of going to school looks like. As we follow students, parents and teachers through a truly unorthodox school experience, the audience is forced to consider what sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century.

Post screening panel discussion with:

Andrew Bartlett, General Manager, Harbor View and Scout Hotel & Resort Management; Matthew T. D’Andrea, LP.D., Superintendent of Schools; Richard Smith, Assistant Superintendent; Donna Luther, Head of Inly School, faculty member of Creative Education foundation and adjunct faculty member at Lesley University; Timothy Madden, State Representative for Falmouth, Martha’s Vineyard, the Elizabeth Islands and Nantucket
