 This is a must-see film for all teachers, parents and students living in the high-stakes, high-pressure culture that has invaded our schools and our children's lives, creating unhealthy, unprepared, and stressed-out youth. Filmed by a concerned mother in the East Bay, this is a call to mobilize families, educators and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare our students to become healthy, bright, contributing, educated citizens.
