" Race to Nowhere" at BHS

Burlington High School will be a host sight for the movie" Race to Nowhere" on Thursday April 28th at 7:00 P.M.The movie offers insight into the high stress environment our students are faced with everyday. We highly recommend students and parents attend. Please click here for registration information.

“Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills
they need, and parents who are trying to
do what’s best for their kids, Race to Nowhere
points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become isengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.”
