...a message Americans need to hear, and desperately test.
The 21st century is going to be all about building, creating, and innovating. This remarkable film shows a path of how we can empower all of our children to do that.
...among the best edu-documentaries ever produced.
The students showcased in Most Likely to Succeed represent what’s possible when you give kids more responsibility than you think they can handle and ask them to bring all of their knowledge to bear on a single task.
"...a documentary that charts a history of the American education system and offers a deep look into one new approach to learning."
...a smart and engaging look at education in 21st-century America.
Show it to your students! Show it to your PTAs! Show it to your faculty! Show it to your school board!
..a discussion that needs to start now.
I am watching the video and am in tears at the beauty of what's being visualized as learning in the unfolding voices and images. I want to share this with everyone.
Most Likely To Succeed' is exactly what we need.
I have not seen a clearer examination of the underlying assumptions about the real skills students need to succeed in today’s world.
We got so many ideas for our initiatives from this film, and the impact of the film will be immediate and important.
This film is an eyeopener. It clearly demonstrates why our students are not succeeding in school, but rather than inspiring fear, it offers real solutions that engage students.
...there is something special that permeates the film. It is something that educators might recognize from their own experiences – a sense of hope.
This movie brilliantly tells a story every community needs to hear. It shows us how reinventing our approach to education can make every student an independent, lifelong learner fully prepared for today's challenges and opportunities.
I had tears in my eyes wishing that my husband could have seen your work. It was not only the right message – he was the one who introduced the word 'exhibition' into its modern usage as the kind of assessment which actually makes sense for students – but also as a piece of art...
MLTS started our thinking about the future of education and what it should look like. A must see for every educator, K-12 through post-secondary.
Hosting a screening of this film in our community was a wonderful catalyst for invigorating discussions among our students, staff, parents, and community members. The film inspired us to re-imagine what is happening in our classrooms.
The screening of MLTS was pivotal in our process of bringing our teachers and community along as move toward a transformational change in our district. The conversations that have occurred around rethinking education in Marshall County have become much richer, deeper, and personal as the result of MLTS. It has become a launching pad for many innovations in our district, resulting in intentionally preparing students with the survival skills they must have for college, career, and life.
Over 200 educators, parents, students, and community partners viewed the documentary and discussed how project-based learning would positively impact learning. Overwhelmingly, our guests were inspired by the film and recognize that change is schools is inevitable and overdue.
Incredible! It is the best explanation I have seen of what the issues are with education in America. I have not been this excited about the future of education in a very long time.
