Ted Dintersmith’s quest to change the nature of public education comes to Charlotte Saturday with a free screening of the documentary “Most Likely to Succeed.”

Dintersmith, a venture capitalist and author of a book by the same name, is making a 50-state tour to push the idea that education needs to change dramatically to teach students teamwork and innovation, rather than following an outdated model that was created in 1893.

Saturday’s screening is hosted by the Teaching Fellows Institute and UNC Charlotte. The film starts at 9 a.m. at the university’s center city building, 320 E. Ninth St., with a discussion led by Dintersmith at 10:30. The event is free; go to http://bit.ly/TFIMLTSScreening to register.
