“Most Likely to Succeed” Documentary Screening & Discussion
Date: 5/5/2018 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Cost: Free

Join us for a screening of the award-winning education documentary MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED, followed by a community discussion with educators.

The East Meets West Parenting Education Club (EMWPEC), in collaboration with South Pasadena Public Library and the South Pasadena Chinese American Club will host a screening of the award winning documentary, “Most Likely To Succeed”, directed by Greg Whiteley and produced by Ted Dintersmith. The documentary presents a different perspective of what schools could be and a new approach on transforming an outdated American education system to prepare the next generation to face a high-tech society and innovative economy.

A panel discussion will follow the discussion, featuring Ron Gunnoe, M.A. Education and Dr. Lawrence Fritz, Dean of Graduate Studies & Research Professor of Biology at Cal State LA.

This event is free to the public, but we ask that you please RSVP at www.tinyurl.com/EMWPEC-film.
