The Milton Community Alliance for Mental Wellness, a collaborative effort of Fulton County Schools and the City of Milton, among others, is sponsoring two screenings of the award-winning documentary “Race to Nowhere,” March 25 and 30.

“Race to Nowhere” highlights the unintended consequences of our pressure-cooker culture. It features heart-breaking stories of students across the country, revealing an education system in which overall workload and achievement expectations have become unreasonable and unmanageable.
