The film Race to Nowhere directed by Vicki Abeles is a spectacular film that expresses the concerns of parents all over the country Children are suffering and we are doing nothing about it Every night children come home to hours of homework after doing bundles of work at school and at afterschool programs Enough is enough children just need to be kids and because of outside influences school and even parenting skills have halted the process What it meant to be a child years ago has a complete different meaning than it does now But the real question is whose fault is it the schools or parentsChildren are suffering They detest going to school and are starting to obtain mental and physical health issues such as sleep deprivation anorexia depression and other issues described in the film Maybe its time for the school systems to see that the amount homework given needs to be changed or something even more drastic like suicide will occur In the film their where several cases that varied from depression to suicide In reality they walk hand in hand You dont just wake up one day and say this is the day I will kill myself You think of this days weeks even months in advance It was disappointing to see that the teachers or parents couldnt tell that something was wrong with the child Another case stated in the film was about a girl that gained an eating disorder she was sent to an institution and once she was better was allowed to return to school But the principle would not allow her to return back to school because she would be a distraction to other students Since when has work been more important than a childs health It shouldnt be and that is what is wrong with our systemNow with the way the world is there is only a main way to get into college private schools
