Film Showing at St. Matthew's Parish School on Thursday

On Thursday, June 11, at 6:00 p.m., St. Matthew's Parish School will host a screening of Most Likely to Succeed, a Sundance Film Festival edu-documentary. Here's a blurb from the film's website:

Our education system was perfectly prepare workers for routine jobs that no longer exist. As we try to out-drill and out-test Korea we are leaving millions of young adults ill-prepared, uninspired and lacking the skills they need to thrive in an innovation economy. After seeing this film, you'll never look at school the same way again.

The screening is free for all attendees. Sign up online »
