Notre Dame's School of Education to screen award-winning education documentary

Notre Dame of Maryland University's School of Education will be hosting a screening of the education documentary, "Most Likely to Succeed" on Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 7 p.m. in LeClerc Auditorium. The screening is open to the public and free with registration at ndm.edu/MLTS.

Cited as "...among the best edu-documentaries ever produced" by Education Week, this provocative and critically-acclaimed film raises questions about the current U.S. educational system and its reliance on test scores to determine success. The movie documents a year at a San Diego high school, where students are encouraged to develop alternative and transformational skills such collaboration, risk taking, and critical analysis.  

An official Cannes selection in 2015, The Huffington Post writes that the film is "...a message Americans need to hear, and desperately test." 

NDMU is located at 4701 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21210.

The NDMU School of Education, among Maryland's top providers of new teachers and a leading producer of Teachers of the Year, offers more programs in teacher shortage areas than any other institution in the state.
