Paper Tigers Screening
Charterhouse School and UMFS invite you to come join the growing trauma-informed/resliency movement as we host a community screening of the award-winning documentary Paper Tigers with a short opportunity for discussion to follow. 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.
