The Dallas library to host documentary
On Thursday at 6 p.m., Innovate Dallas will show the film, “Most Likely to Succeed,” at the Dallas Public Library.
There will be a question-and-answer time with members of the Innovate Dallas team after the film.
The movie is a look at the American education system and some of the ways in which schools, educators, parents, and communities are working to re-imagine the educational process.
The film addresses current flaws in the system and seeks to examine ways of creating a 21st Century school experience.
This program is free to attend.
