A free public screening of Beyond Measure, a documentary that looks at schools on the cutting edge of education reform, will be held April 19 at Northwestern University.
A discussion following the viewing features Tim Dohrer, director of the Master of Science in Education program in the School of Education and Social Policy, and Pete Bavis, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction at Evanston Township High School.
Beyond Measure weaves together stories of four public school communities in the U.S. who are challenging traditional data-driven educational practices. It includes interviews with Sir Ken Robinson, Linda Darling-Hammond, Yong Zhao, Carol Dweck, Alison Gopnik and Daniel Pink.
Northwestern alumnus and MSLOC faculty member Judah Kurtz, a professional coaching and management consultant, wanted to bring the screening to campus after watching director Vicki Abeles’ previous film, Race to Nowhere. The event is co-hosted by the MS in Education and the MS in Learning and Organizational Change programs.
Free pizza will be provided from 5:30 to 6 p.m. The screening begins at 6 p.m. and will be at the McCormick Foundation Forum, 1870 Campus Drive. Please RSVP here.
