The Orange Public Schools Present a Free Public Screening of Beyond Measure
On December 5, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Orange Preparatory Academy, Orange Public School District's Mathematics and Science Department will host a screening and discussion of the movie Beyond Measure. The film, directed by Vivki Abeles, author parent and education advocate, is a follow up to her documentary about "the dark side of America's achievement culture" Race to Nowhere. In Beyond Measure, viewers are introduced to public schools across the country as they "embark on a journey to transcend the limits of an outmoded, test-driven education system and create a more equitable, empowering, student-centered education culture from the ground up." The film will show how groundbreaking school communities are implementing research based innovative models and transforming how and what they teach. The Orange Public School District will potentially use practices illustrated by the trailblazers in Beyond Measure to model the future Orange STEM Academy. The event is free and open to the public.
