All A Honor Roll Lunch Celebration on this Wednesday, March 18th at 11am.
Author Frank Bruni to speak about College Admissions Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania.
Increasingly, American parents start worrying about college admissions when their children are barely out of diapers. And by middle school, kids have been thrust into the competition for the Ivy League. But that's a dangerous game, one that teaches kids a curious set of values, sets too many of them up for disappointment and perverts the true purpose of education. It's also built on a myth: that success hinges on going to a highly selective school. Frank Bruni will talk about a better, healthier way to think about and approach all of this, distilling the research, life stories and advice in his new book, "Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania," being published on March 17th.
Please join us on Monday March 23rd at 7:00 p.m. as Mr. Bruni will be speaking about this important topic in the auditorium at W.T. Woodson High School. This event is free and open to the FCPS community. Mr. Bruni will be on hand after the event to sign copies of his book which will be on sale that evening.
