Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence, and disease that affect families.
Paper Tigers captures the pain, the danger, the beauty, and the hopes of struggling teens—and the teachers armed with new science and fresh approaches that are changing their lives for the better.

when you are scheduling and if this is a school/agency-only or community event so that we can advertise on the MRBN website, etc. We do want to keep track of the showings in Maine and feel that this is a tremendous opportunity to start or continue a dialogue about ACEs and resilience throughout our communities.
Here you will find Information about the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study and learn more about resilience.
