A college diploma once meant a guaranteed job, but now more than half of America’s recent graduates are unemployed. Premiering at Sundance this year, this compelling documentary is an overdue challenge to the educational system in the United States. The film expertly contrasts the century-old ideologies that continue to dominate American academics with the alternative approach taken by High Tech High, a project-based charter school that prioritizes student collaboration, critical thinking, and risk-taking—but which sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century?
"An inspiring picture of what many of us hope for millions of American students."
