About the Film: “Every day we hear stories about America’s troubled education system. And we’re told that in order to fix what’s broken, we need to narrow our curricula, standardize our classrooms, and find new ways to measure students and teachers. But what if these ‘fixes’ are making our schools worse. In Beyond Measure, we set out to challenge the assumptions of our current education story.”
