"Most Likely to Succeed" Screening and Community Discussion with Executive Producer Ted Dintersmith

The Yale Education Leadership Conference, The Future Project, Educators for Progress, Innovation and Collaboration (EPIC) Forum, and New Haven Public Schools are pleased to present a special screening of the highly acclaimed education documentary film, Most Likely to Succeed with executive producer Ted Dintersmith.

Following the screening, we invite you to join Most Likely To Succeed's executive producer Ted Dintersmith and New Haven's Educators for Progress, Innovation, and Collaboration (EPIC) Forum founder, David Low, for a discussion on innovations happening in New Haven and across the country - and how to deepen innovation in our classrooms, our schools, and our city.

ABOUT THE FILM

Most Likely to Succeed premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, has been featured in over two dozen top film festivals, and screened in over 1,000 communities across the country since September. It has been named “among the best edu-documentaries ever produced” by Education Week, and called a “smart and engaging look at education in the 21st century” by The Hollywood Reporter.

Our school system was designed in 1893. The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education in the United States, revealing the growing shortcomings of conventional education methods in today's innovative world.

The film explores compelling new approaches that revolutionize teaching as we know it. After seeing the film, the way you think about "school" will never be the same and you will leave inspired about the future of education in our country.
