Program: Educational Resources

Dates: 2/19/2019

New
Paper Tigers is a documentary film that follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining and working with its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence, and disease that affect families.

Following six students over the course of a school year, we see Lincoln High School staff try a new approach: one based on understanding and treatment rather than judgment and suspension.

Using a combination of verite and revealing diary cam footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest developmental science is showing: that just one caring adult can help break the cycle of adversity in a young person's life.
