KPJR Films presents two free screenings of a new documentary, entitled "Paper Tigers" at the Gesa Power House Theatre.
"Paper Tigers" follows several students at Walla Walla's own Lincoln High School over the course of a year. This documentary explores the impact of adverse childhood experiences on students and the new science and different approaches that are being used at Lincoln to help students achieve success.
Lincoln radically changed its approach to discipline over the last few years and has seen a dramatic turnaround in graduation rates, number of fights, test scores, and more. The school has become a promising model of how to break cycles of poverty, violence, and more. "Paper Tigers" shows how the latest educational strategies and research can impact the lives of youths in our communities. According to David Bornstein, "'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."
The "Paper Tigers" showings are on Friday Sept. 4th at 5 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. at the Gesa Power House Theatre, located at 111 N. 6th Ave. in Walla Walla. Doors open at 4 p.m. For more information please visit http://phtww.com/.
