Paper Tigers is a film that captures the pain, danger, beauty and hopes of struggling teens and the teachers armed with new science and fresh approaches that are changing lives for the better. The documentary film is open to the public, though free tickets must be reserved in advance.
Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, and in the process has become a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families. The school saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates.
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.
