第一百一十一期活动

影视�竞争无道� (Race to Nowhere)观看与讨论

在2月23日,我们将播放没有向外公开的纪录片�竞争无道�,并由子女教育专家廖冰主持观后讨论。这部影片向人们展示了目前学校给孩子们带来的学习压力以及其带来的精神和身体上的伤害,使父母们不得不冷静下来想清楚所有的竞争是否真的能使孩子们到达他们想要或应该到达的地方?他们走的路真地将会给他们带来幸福和快乐,还是让他们走上了迷路甚至是绝路?作为父母,我们需要做的事是从盲目的竞争中走出来,做到教育有方,竞争有道。

廖冰女士1984年毕业于北京大学物理系。于1991和2000年分别获休斯顿大学物理博士和罗格斯大学工商管理硕士。廖冰从2002年开始创办非营利英华语言学校,推广《马立平中文》教学。2004年成立�英华在北京�语言与领导能力暑期班,并担任新州父母子女教育俱乐部总顾问,着重于儿童及青少年情商开发与培养,增进父母与子女的交流。2007她创建了采用国际化探究式教育法的中英双语英华国际学校。2012年成立英华普林斯顿语言与国际领导力暑期学院,带领来自非英语国家的学生在美国劳伦斯威尔私立高中进行学习与实践。在教育事业上历时十多年的研发和奋斗,使廖冰积攒了丰富的儿童及青少年教育经验,为新洲华人父母如何教子提供了无数宝贵的建议,开阔了人们的眼界,改变了父母认识问题的角度。希望大家能够来参加这次机会难得的教育探讨。

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.

Short Synopsis

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.

When: Saturday, 2/23/2013 6:30 ~ 7pm, Registration, 7:00-9:30pm, Film Viewing and Discussion.
