ABOUT THE FILM

 

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.

 

“STRESSED BRAINS CAN’T LEARN”

 

Armed with research on how the toxic stress created as a result of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) impact brain development, Lincoln High adopted a trauma-informed approach that goes against the grain of traditional school discipline. In the film, Lincoln High science teacher Erik Gordon points out, “According to research about childhood trauma, all the risk factors for adverse childhood experiences can be offset by one thing: The presence of a stable, caring adult in the child’s life.”
