For students, parents, educators, and anyone who cares about the future of the American education system, Beyond Measure is a call to action that demonstrates how innovation can and does work to break the stifling status quo. Director-producer Vicki Abeles has crafted a smart companion piece to her award-winning Race to Nowhere (MVFF 2009) that challenges the current education model of cookie-cutter teaching methods and a narrow, test-driven culture that leaves little room for creativity. Following a diverse group of educators across the country who are successfully pioneering fresh and often radically new approaches in their schools, the film showcases the viewpoints of faculty, students, and renowned thought leaders in the education field. It offers a collective “yes, we can” in answer to the big question of whether individuals and communities can drive the US teaching system back to the vital business of helping kids learn how to learn.
