PPH op-ed on college admissions process

Most of us have some time before we enter this nuttiness, but this op-ed did get me thinking about how complicated it is to try to live sanely without completely going off the grid... there are powerful magnets in the system, and to op-out comes with some consequences -- yet, as Race to Nowhere purports, to opt-in has a lot of consequences too... I wonder if there is any way to participate moderately?

All of the different ways to foster family values for higher education, self-awareness, self-exploration, and purposeful decision-making would make a WONDERFUL discussion after the screening of "Race to Nowhere", Kim! I believe these are (at least some of) the values to focus on preK-8, that can only be helpful when it comes to the high school senior's process. This is a delicate balancing act, as are so many things in parenting!

I'd be happy to talk with others to see how we might like to do follow-up to the movie, if something is not already planned?...

Best!
