But as the global economy has shifted over the past 20 years, the United States has clung to an obsolete education model with an emphasis on teaching to the test, thus leaving our students woefully unprepared for 21st Century employment and disillusioning our teachers. In the new feature-length documentary Most Likely to Succeed, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, director, writer and producer Greg Whiteley examines the shortcomings of conventional education methods in today’s changing world. The film also explores an exciting new approach that promotes so-called “soft skills,” which many believe are more important in today’s workplace than the “Three R’s.” At a time when many recent college graduates find themselves unemployed or underemployed, Most Likely to Succeed explores the causes of this phenomenon and offers up a possible solution. Interviews with education specialists, economists, business leaders, teachers, students and parents shed light on the urgent need for a new kind of education that develops the uniquely human skills and capacities that cannot be replaced or made obsolete by a machine.  TRAILER: https://vimeo.com/122502930 One Girl is a charity empowering girls through education.
