      Self-Taught Movie Screening

      Have you ever wondered how kids that take non-traditional educational paths turn out? Are they "successful" in life? Can they get into college? How do they make a living, get jobs or start their own businesses? And how do they define success for themselves?Then you’ll want to see Self-Taught - a new film from Jeremy Stuart, director of the award-winning documentary, Class Dismissed. The film shares the story of six extraordinary individuals and explores what self-directed education means to them and the impact it has had on their lives, ambitions, work and beliefs.===COST===Tickets for adults and children 4 and over will be $4 each.
