Film looks at how schools discipline
Beacon filmmaker Ana Joanes and the Howland Public Library will present a free screening of the documentary Paper Tigers at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, at the library. Directed by James Redford, the 2015 film documents a year at Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington. After radically changing its approach to discipline, the school saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates.
