Sundance documentary on education at Firehouse Arts Center tonight

Film shows how traditional education system creates learning gaps

The city of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton PTA Council will screen a new documentary on the shortcomings of the traditional American education system at Firehouse Arts Center at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

The film, "Most Likely to Succeed," was screened at the Sundance Film Festival in January and received acclaim from critics and educators for its depiction of the growing gap between what is taught in American schools and what skills are needed in American jobs.

The film also discusses new approaches to learning that could revolutionize existing teaching methods.

Although admission is free, seating is limited, so attendees are encouraged to register at PleasantonFun.com with the code 61148. Doors open at 6 p.m.
