For parents this video gives hope that there are dedicated teachers out there willing to accept their students and offer hope to those families who children have social, emotional, or behavioral needs. For teachers this is a refreshing look at how to handle behavior with dedication, endurance, and an empathy based approach. It is thought provoking and the dedication this school shows to its students is heart warming and powerful.
As an educator I found this immensely relate-able and well worth the watch. HOWEVER, it is in the Kid's section of Amazon and rated PG. No way is it a kid's movie and no way is it PG. There is a TON of swearing. Many F bombs and more.
An awesome thought provoking documentary identifying the daily challenges that teachers face with children who have behavioural issues. This reveals not only the educators dedication and passion, but also the challenges and struggles that they and the children face on a daily basis. This brings to light the hope that these children (past and present) can lead a normal and productive life through the efforts of dedicated individuals.
