NEW ROCHELLE, NY — The City School District of New Rochelle on November 11th will screen Beyond Measure, a documentary film which “follows a new vanguard of educators across the country who are pioneering a fresh vision for American schools,” according to the official web site for the film.
“Pulling from expert research in education, child development, and cognitive and neuroscience, these leaders are creating a new type of classroom. They’re leading schools that redirect our focus away from homework, prizes, top grades and test scores. And they’re making room for curiosity, engagement, creativity, collaboration and independent thinking. By putting innovative models into practice, they’re finding inspiration in doing things differently – and changing how and what we teach.”
Following the film there will be a panel discussion including Schools Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne, Chief Academic Officer Dr. Magda Parvey and New Rochelle High School Principal Reggie Richardson along with parent representatives.
Location: Whitney Auditorium 265 Clove Road New Rochelle, NY
Tickets: $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
