Gardner Bullis sponsors movie screening at Foothill

Gardner Bullis School has scheduled a public screening of the documentary “Beyond Measure” 7-9 p.m. Thursday in Foothill College’s Smithwick Theatre, 12345 S. El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills.

“Beyond Measure,” produced by the same Reel Link Films team that made “Race to Nowhere,” shines a light on tenacious and cutting-edge alternatives to the stifling, high-pressure education system presented in its predecessor. Where many past documentaries have dwelled on the education crisis and the policies to blame for it, “Beyond Measure” follows public schools across the country as they take matters into their own hands, innovating from the inside. By spotlighting success stories, “Beyond Measure” aims to show that it is possible to rise above America’s achievement fixation and build a richer, deeper, more empowering and student-centered education culture from the ground up.
