This review is from: I Am a Promise: The Children of Stanton Elementary School (DVD)
This is a powerful documentary about the children in an inner-city elementary school. It profiles their struggles trying to get an education in a neighborhood filled with danger, violence, drugs and despair. It also highlights the efforts of the incredibly dedicated principal, who truly believes that her students can achieve if given a chance. These children face so many challenges, yet, like all children, they have enormous potential and promise. Sadly, though their principal knows this, the educational system does not seem capable of helping these students.....nor does society as a whole seem to care.
