Two free showings of the documentary “Race to Nowhere” are being held at Carroll Community College on Monday, Nov 18.
Alpha Psi Psi, Carroll’s chapter of the international community college honor society Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), is encouraging the public to attend their free showings, the first of which will be at 2 p.m., and the second at 6 p.m.
Each showing will then be followed by a group discussion about the film. The documentary will be shown in room K100.
“Race to Nowhere” is a PG-13 rated documentary that investigates how much of students’ lives are dedicated to school, and how stressful it can be. The film also goes deeper into determining whether new studying methods should be implemented in students’ lives so they can excel.
While there is no entrance fee to the showing, PTK is encouraging attendees to bring a non-perishable item for the Carroll Community College Food Locker. Donations will go to help Carroll students and faculty in need.
Judy Samuels, Alpha Psi Psi chapter adviser, says that the showings of this documentary are a part of the Society’s “Honors in Action” project.
