We live in a world where content is free, easily accessible, and constantly changing. Our country needs high school graduates who can think critically and contribute to an innovation economy. D.C. Everest is doing an amazing job of educating our students, but how can we do our jobs even better in an ever-changing environment?

On Tuesday, December 1, we will be showing the movie Most Likely to Succeed at 6:30 in the Middle School Theater. Most Likely to Succeed is an education documentary examining the history of the current educational system in the United States based on a book of the same title by Tony Wagner and Ted Dintersmith. Our educational system was created during the start of the industrial age in the late 1800’s and was the envy of the world. Now the world around us has transformed with new innovations, jobs, and careers. Overall the United States educational system has remained barely changed. How can we prepare graduates for today’s global economy and job market? What sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed moving forward in the 21st century?

If you wish to attend, please sign up for a free ticket at http://tinyurl.com/pbkpxnhThen bring your ticket to the event, either electronically or on paper. We are inviting a wide variety of community members. Ticket holders will be admitted first to be certain there is sufficient seating.
