Short Synopsis of the film:
A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children’s lives.
This remarkable new film shines a light on the price young people pay for this “race to nowhere.” High-stakes testing has replaced meaningful teaching and learning.
Cheating is commonplace. Stress-related
illness, depression and burnout are rampant. Many young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

We’ve added a total of 914 items to the collection in this academic year. We're still waiting on a number of items to arrive, and completing a large number of orders as well. We'll keep posting new item lists through the end of the fiscal year on our blog (this tag will show you all of the prior lists).
Have a suggestion of something to order? Use our online request form, email one of our staff members or drop by the library with your request. While our deadline for ordering this year is already past, we usually have some unspent funds available over the next month to buy a few more items right away (and failing that, we will start ordering again on July 1).
Thanks again for keeping our collection vibrant and your information needs met!
