Amazing footage
17 March 2018 | by JohnnyLee1See all my reviews

Documentary shows the work of teachers to help kids graduate despite what is happening around them that impacts on their chances to succeed. Amazing footage and the kids are wonderful. Standout is Principal Viland. Probably would have liked if producers had interviewed kids or teachers directly, but in a way that would have been easy way out. Working from "fly-on-the-wall" approach ensures realism, as far as possible.
