    About two weeks ago, Habib and others were interviewed about the issues raised by the film, on NPR–it was fascinating. About twelve minutes, truly compelling.

    UGH! Where is the rest of it? What a tease. Curious to see what RENEW is about. Londonderry has had PBIS since my son was little.

      Apparently, it was in Red River Theaters in Concord last weekend. I’m not sure what the next steps are for it. I will attempt to find out.

    Very inspiring. Reminded me as to the need to be compassionate in spite of the behavior. The student knew herself but chose to behave in a certain way. We need to give young people “the right tools” to know themselves better and cope. There’s always a story behind each student. Once that story is “understood” the healing process can begin. Thank you. I will look for the documentary in Concord this week-end.
