The City of Edmonds Diversity Film Series is featuring a free screening of the movie Paper Tigers this Saturday, April 20 at noon at the Edmonds Theater, 415 Main St. Edmonds.
Paper Tigers chronicles a year in the life of Lincoln High School in the community of Walla Walla, Wash. The kids who come to Lincoln have a history of truancy, behavioral problems and substance abuse.
After Lincoln’s principal is exposed to research about the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), he decides to radically change the school’s approach to discipline. With the aid of diary camera footage, the film follows six students — on the cusp of dropping out — who find healing, support and academic promise at Lincoln High.
