American parents seem to be producing three different and fundamentally broken childhood experiences by pushing, coddling or shrugging off their kids.

The 2010 film “Race to Nowhere,” which was screened at high-performing school districts across America, captured the angst of the pushed. The movie describes itself as “featuring the heartbreaking stories of students across the country who have been pushed to the brink by over-scheduling, over-testing and the relentless pressure to achieve.” Calling this rat race a “silent epidemic in our schools,” the film “reveals an education system in which cheating has become commonplace; students have become disengaged; stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant; and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.”
