Most Likely to Succeed - a special screening at BLC16!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ted Dintersmith will be present for a special showing of his acclaimed film "Most Likely to Succeed" just for BLC16 attendees. "Most Likely To Succeed" is the best film ever done on the topic of school — both its past and its future. The film inspires its audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility, and is bringing school communities together in re-imagining what our students and teachers are capable of doing. After seeing this film, you’ll never look at school the same way again.

After the film, Alan and Ted will hold a discussion! This is a no-miss!
