“Paper Tigers is a moving and profoundly important film that offers critical insights into one of the most widespread educational and health challenges in American society. It should be mandatory viewing for teachers and principals across the country, and anyone who works with vulnerable youth” said David Bornstein, New York Times author and Co-Founder of The Solutions Journalism Network. The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington. After radically changing its approach to disciplining its students, Lincoln High School saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates. The school has become a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families through the practice of ongoing trauma-informed educational strategies. Told with intimate verite and diary cam footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest research on childhood adversity is proving: that one caring adult can change the trajectory of a young person’s life.
