The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education in the United States,
revealing the growing 
shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s innovative world. The film explores compelling
new approaches that aim 
to transform learning as we know it. After seeing this film, the way you think about “school” will never be
the same. Over a century ago,
American education underwent a dramatic transformation as the iconic one-room schoolhouse
evolved into an effective system that
produced an unmatched workforce tailored for the 20th Century. As the world economy
shifts and traditional white-collar jobs begin 
to disappear, that same system remains intact, producing potentially chronic levels
of unemployment among graduates in the 21st
Century. The film follows students into the classrooms of High Tech High, an
innovative new school in San Diego. There, over the course 
of a school year, two groups of ninth graders take on ambitious,
project-based challenges that promote critical skills rather than rote
memorization. Most Likely to Succeed points to a
transformation in learning that may hold the key to success for millions of our youth –
and our nation – as we grapple with the
ramifications of rapid advances in technology, automation and growing levels of 
income inequality.
