ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Troubling graduation rates, disengagement, and stark workforce-development challenges indicate a great need in our community for highly impactful, relevant schools that prepare our youth for their future. Transforming Education: Innovative Solutions for Tomorrow’s Challenges is an event that marks the beginning of a bold new educational movement in New Mexico. The New Mexico Center for School Leadership, a nonprofit organization based in Albuquerque, is hosting the event to re-imagine with our community what our schools, students and teachers are capable of achieving.
The event will take place on Thursday November 19th, 2015 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in the Bank of America Theatre from 4pm to 6:30pm.
Transforming Education will feature a screening of the award-winning educational documentary Most Likely to Succeed, an official selection in the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and deemed “one of the best edu-documentaries ever produced” by Education Week. The film will be followed by a local panel discussion.
The New Mexico Center for School Leadership seeks to engage our community in exploring entirely new approaches to school. Both the film and the panel will examine the stark reality of education in the 21st century and explore how we can create schools that equip our students with skills to succeed.
