If There is a Reason to Study


RenWen is a young Taiwan alternative junior high school where test scores and rankings didn’t exist. Students in this school were encouraged to explore their callings free from the presumption of career hierarchy and the need to excel in tests. However, in able to access to high school and further education, the first graduates of RenWen inevitably faced a standardized admission test, the BCT, which will distribute them to different schools and tracks based on their scores. Will the RenWen students be changed by this testing system? Directed by 14-year-old Taiwanese student Adler Yang, If There is a Reason to Study is a five-year (and yet to be continued) examination on a test-driven education’s impact on students
