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.

The film, Most Likely to Succeed is taking the educational world by storm. 


'For most of the last century, entry-level jobs were plentiful, and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in todayʼs innovative world.  Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been named “among the best edu-documentaries ever produced” by Education Week, and called a “smart and engaging look at education in the 21st century” by The Hollywood Reporter. Film Threat stated that “this film should be a required course for all parents and educators.” Most Likely To Succeed is an official selection of many of the America's top film festivals, including the prestigious 2015 Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.'


The education system has fallen behind business, technology and the world economy and is leaving many students unprepared for the 21st century.  Most Likely to Succeed explores how schools are failing children, leaving them unable to think critically, collaborate and contribute to an innovative economy.  The skills that will save young people is creation and innovation.  The film implores viewers to consider the human consequences of education with the question, who do you want your child to be?


A must see for all educators, designers, managers, students and parents.
