Valley City  (CSi)  On Tues Oct 17, educators, parents, and others will take part in the Most Likely to Succeed’s worldwide campaign to re-imagine education.

The acclaimed film Most Likely to Succeed offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of—if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools.

Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and AFI DOCS. It’s been featured at leading conferences on education, including ASU/GSV, SxSWedu, Harvard/GoldmanSachs, and NewSchools Venture Fund. Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school. In the past year, more than 2,300 communities have booked a screening of Most Likely to Succeed.  This event will be held in Vangstad Auditorium on the Valley City State University campus at 7 PM.

The purpose is to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents, and students about how current obstacles can be overcome and steps towards change can be taken on a local level. Born out of these conversations is a community-wide commitment to moving forward; transformational initiatives are undertaken and real change is ignited.  District 24 legislators have been invited to take part in the discussion afterwards, as well as VC Public School Superintendent Josh Johnson.  Nick Archuleta, VCHS and VCSU graduate and current president of North Dakota United will moderate the discussion.  This event is free and open to the public.
