MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED: COMMUNITY SCREENING
January 6, 2016

The Bristol Warren Regional School District in partnership with the Bristol Warren Education Association and the Bristol Warren Education Foundation invite you to attend a screening of the award-winning documentary “Most Likely to Succeed.”  

For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful, and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in todayʼs innovative world.

Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been named “among the best edu-documentaries ever produced” by Education Week, and called a “smart and engaging look at education in the 21st century” by The Hollywood Reporter. Film Threat stated that “this film should be a required course for all parents and educators.” Most Likely To Succeed is an official selection of many of the nation’s top film festivals, including the prestigious 2015 Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.  

We believe “Most Likely to Succeed” can be a springboard for important community-wide conversations about public education between and among parents, teachers, and students. Rather than promote any particular model or approach, our goal is to provoke, challenge, and perhaps even inspire, as we remain focused on providing our students with a world-class education in Bristol and Warren.  

We hope you will consider joining us on Wednesday, January 20, at 6:00 p.m. at Kickemuit Middle School. 

Please be aware that the film is appropriate for adults, as well as interested middle-school and high-school students.
