The Race to Nowhere

The Race to Nowhere is a compelling documentary about the growing national problem of over-scheduled and over-worked kids and their parents.   The desire to get into the “best” colleges has led to a near-frenzy of making sure kids are getting great grades, doing lots of homework, playing a sport, doing community service, curing a disease, working in a third world village and speaking three languages; that kids are becoming depressed and incredibly tired.  And parents are frustrated.

We all want the best for our kids.  We want them to be successful, happy and healthy.  Mostly we want them to be kids.   This documentary is a good place to start.
