“MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED”
Screening & Discussion
10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Sunday, February 28, 2016
For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful, and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary “Most Likely To Succeed” (2015, 88 minutes) examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in today’s innovative world. The film explores compelling new approaches in project-based learning that aim to revolutionize teaching as we know it.
“…among the best edu-documentaries ever produced.” – Education Week

Sholem’s secular (non-religious) Sunday school engages children 4-17 years in an exploration of Jewish identity and progressive ideals.
