ABOUT THE FILM
The traditional education system, built on the foundation that academic content knowledge is king, is no longer adequate to prepare our children for the 21st century workforce. There is a sense of urgency for change, but figuring out what to change, and helping change the mindsets of educators, parents, and children themselves hasn’t been easy.
This documentary captures the authentic SAS story, including personal reflections and in-the-moment struggles of faculty and leadership over the past four years. The film provides a picture of how SAS is taking on transforming an existing successful school to better serve students well into the future. The process was designed to challenge deeply held assumptions, engage faculty, shape culture, and included thousands of hours of research and visitations to over 100 schools worldwide. Over 100 college admissions officers were interviewed, internationally known educational leaders were consulted, and a strategic plan is now in place reflecting what has been learned.
Changing Education From The Inside Out takes us on the journey with the educators from Singapore American School, showcasing the motivations, extensive research, and challenges to transforming the education system--breaking frontiers and raising the bar.
