In 1893, leading educators formed the Committee of Ten (C10) to design a school model to prepare children for assembly-line jobs. Those jobs have vanished, but the C10’s model still rules the day in American education. We need to reimagine school for the 21st century.
And you can help! Here’s our challenge to you: Form your own Committee of Ten — your own coalition of parents, teachers, administrators, and students who want to help your school reach its full potential. To help you assemble your own energized C10, we’re providing a way for you and nine of your colleagues to see the film Most Likely to Succeed for an all-in price of just $15. The film - an official selection of Sundance, Tribeca, AFI, and twenty-five other major films festivals -- has inspired audiences in more than 4,000 communities around the world. Here’s how this offer works:
Nothing is more important today than fighting for the best possible education for your students. Our kids depend on us to make good decisions on their behalf. Don’t dawdle.
Form your own C10 today, and bring energy and purpose to the aspirational goal of helping your school be all that it could be.
Many people realize that our schools are stuck in time, but it’s challenging to change an existing school. By forming your C10, you can assemble a like-minded team to help your school make progress. This C10 offering isn’t intended for institutional viewing – for bigger audiences, you can license the film here. But an energized C10 can work constructively with school leaders, and support their efforts to effect positive change.
You can share the screening link with up to nine additional viewers, but no problem if a smaller number of people commit.
Yes. You and your C10 colleagues can rewatch the film (all or particular sections) as often as you want within your screening month.
$15 for a month-long rental for up to 10 viewers.
We strongly believe that this film is a powerful way to bring a community together in thoughtful discussion and aspirational action. In the spirit of innovation that we encourage schools to embrace, we’re offering an innovative way to view and share the film – one that we hope fosters community, collaboration and productive discourse. It’s like a book club, but with a ninety-minute film. And instead of a one-and-done conversation, it’s the start of a process that has the power to transform school as you know it! And even if you watch it on your own, its cost is less than a movie ticket and popcorn.
