The feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines the history of education, revealing the growing shortcomings of our school model in today's innovative world.


Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been named "among the best edu-documentaries ever produced" by Education Week. The Huffington Post stated that Most Likely to Succeed "delivers a message Americans need to hear, and desperately." Film Threat said, "This film should be a required course for all parents and educators."
