Critic Reviews for Race to Nowhere
Like the makers of the excellent high-school-based MTV reality series, "If You Really Knew Me," Ms. Abeles believes that benevolent intervention is an adult's most powerful tool.
A dire warning and solid piece of advocacy journalism, complete with an action checklist at film's end.
Abeles sheds little new light on why few parents, teachers, politicians or administrators seem willing to get off the bus.
Audience Reviews for Race to Nowhere
Stirring. May strike many high-achievers very close to home. Doesn't just raise issues, but offers suggestions. While its suggestions are not particularly innovative, the movie may inspire others to innovation. Could have further discussed what is the likely eventuality of a society where not just kids but adults also are engaged in a very long 'race to nowhere'. While the interviews spoke volumes, a few statistics would have better proved-out the discussion.
