Rep. Roy Takumi co-sponsors free event to foster discussion on teaching

The education documentary, “Most Likely to Succeed,” will be screened on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 6 p.m. in the State Capitol basement auditorium.

Rep. Roy Takumi and the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation are co-sponsoring the free event which will include a small group discussion following the showing of the film.

Directed by documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals including the Sundance Film Festival. The film looks at what students and teachers are capable of—if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools.

The event is meant to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents and students about how current obstacles can be overcome and steps towards change can be taken on a local level.
This event is open to the public. Please visit for more information about the film and the movement.
