The PCE Club presents the 111th Monthly Event:
Screening of the national documentary "Race to Nowhere" and Discussion Led by Dr. Bonnie Liao
About the Film
"Race to Nowhere" is a film that calls us to challenge current thinking about how we prepare our children for success. Named by TakePart.com as one of �10 Education Documentaries You Don�t Want to Miss�, �Race to Nowhere� brings communities together to spark dialogue and galvanize change in America�s schools.
A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the culture of hollow achievement and pressure to perform that has invaded America�s schools. It is destroying our children�s love of learning and feeding an epidemic of unprepared, disengaged, and unhealthy students. This remarkable new film shines a light on the price our kids pay for this �race to nowhere.� Cheating is commonplace, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and ironically, young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.
Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people who have been pushed to the brink and educators who are burned out and worried that students aren�t developing the skills needed for the global economy, race to nowhere points to the silent epidemic running rampant in our schools.
On February 23, the documentary �Race to Nowhere� will be showed, and Dr. Bonnie Liao, an experienced children's educator, will lead the discussion after the screening. Dr. Bonnie Liao has been the principal & trustee of YingHua Language School, which she founded in 2002. YingHua is the first community-based school accredited by CSS at Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In 2004, she designed and initiated the "YingHua in Beijing" Summer Language & Leadership Institute. Dr. Liao founded YingHua International School as one of the first Chinese-English dual language schools in the United States combining language immersion with an internationally-focused inquiry-based curriculum framework in 2007. Her latest accomplishment is the establishment of summer institute in the Lawrenceville School for students from non-English speaking countries in 2012.
More than 10 years of research and practice in education and being the parent of two high school seniors, Dr. Bonnie Liao has accumulated tremendous parenting experience and been frequently giving educational talks in PCE club. Her focus has been on developing and cultivating children�s emotional quotient (EQ) and communicating with children. Her speeches really open people�s eyes to think parenting principles and strategy from different angles. Hope you will be able to take this opportunity joining us for this educational parenting discussion.
