"Race to Nowhere" is a documentary about a teenager who committed suicide because of a bad score she got on a math test. It drew a big crowd at the Tower Theater in Bend last night. “Race to Nowhere" raises questions about the high stakes in the college admission process, the stress related to that, and the current shift toward "teaching to the test". Julie Amberg with the Cascades Academy of Central Oregon isn't surprised that the film is drawing a big crowd. " And I also think that people know in their gut perhaps that it doesn't feel right to see their children so stressed; so they are also looking for answers.” Amberg says some parents of teens report them being so-overscheduled with school, homework, sports and other activities that they rarely can spend quality time with their children. The documentary pre-sold 240 tickets for the Bend showing at the Tower Theater.
