Reviews:

“Absolutely riveting, profoundly important.” – New York Times journalist and author, David Bornstein

“Paper Tigers is a moving and profoundly important film that offers critical insights into one of the most widespread educational and health challenges in American society. It should be mandatory viewing for teachers and principals across the country, and anyone who works with vulnerable youths.” – David Bornstein, New York Times writer and Co-Founder of The Solutions Journalism Network
