This week I was honored to be invited to the 2015 Sundance Film Festival to attend the premier of the film Most Likely to Succeed, a take on the problems with the American education system and efforts toward refreshing the way that our world should learn. Over the last two years director Greg Whiteley and his crew have been following me and other teachers at High Tech High as we have planned and progressed through projects.
I appreciate the take that Greg chose for the film. Though my school is clearly the featured solution, I felt like his thesis was that “other options need be explored” and that High Tech High was an exemplar, not a prescription.
Eventually the film will be available to the public and I can’t wait for a screening of some sort in San Diego. If anyone wants more information about the film and its purpose visit these links.
