Most Likely To Succeed
An eye-opening portrait of schools that are breaking away from outdated teaching methods and embracing new models that can awaken students’ love of learning. Where a college diploma once meant a guaranteed job, now more than half of America’s new college graduates are reportedly unable to find employment. Director Greg Whiteley locates the source of the problem not in the economy but in our educational system, which was developed at the dawn of the Industrial Age to train obedient workers and has changed little since, despite radical developments in the marketplace wrought by technology and the outsourcing of labor. Screening followed by a panel discussion. Cinema Arts Centre, 423 Park Ave. Huntington. cinemaartscentre.org $20 members, $25 public. 7 p.m. Sept. 28.
