Midwest Hosts Screening of “Most Likely to Succeed”

On Wednesday, March 8, at 7 pm, Midwest Academy will be host a free screening of “Most Likely to Succeed,” an award-winning educational documentary released at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2015. This thought-provoking documentary questions the effectiveness of an unchanged educational system against the backdrop of a highly transformed economy. While our current educational system may help students prepare for tests, are they really prepared for the different skills required by the current and future economy?
