Paper Tigers Screening and Discussion of Educational Success for Traumatized Children

The event will start with a screening of the movie, Paper Tigers, which highlights how an alternative school became less punitive and more trauma-sensitive and thereby helped its students attain greater academic and developmental success.  After the screening, a panel of speakers, including UDC Law student Albert Amissah; Vice Principal Dwight Davis from Wheatley Elementary School; DC Councilmember David Grosso; Executive Director Michael Lamb of Turnaround for Children; Tarek Maassarani, team member of Restorative DC, a project of SchoolTalk; and Aaron Rackow, Founder of InSite Solutions, will discuss the biological impact of trauma on learning and what educators can do to support the success of traumatized children.
