Signal Hill Library, Community Foundation to screen acclaimed documentary about children and success

<strong>Race to Nowhere is a film with stories of young people across the United States who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their children.</strong>
The Signal Hill Public Library and the Signal Hill Community Foundation will host a screening of the nationally acclaimed documentary Race to Nowhere, a film that calls for a change in current thinking about how to prepare children for success.
A panel discussion featuring local educators, parents and community leaders will follow the film.
The screening and discussion will take place Friday, April 19 at 6pm in the Signal Hill Park Community Center, 1780 E. Hill St.
Free child care will be provided in the adjacent classroom for children ages 6 to 12 years old. Parents or guardians must register in advance. Call (562) 989-7330 for more information.
