Product Description:

The life of students who attend Stanton Elementary School in North Philadelphia forms the backbone of this fascinating documentary. Shot by Alan and Susan Raymond (AN AMERICAN FAMILY), the film offers a harrowing portrayal of life below the poverty line. Ninety percent of the students at Stanton are living well below the national average, presenting a struggle for both the students and teachers of the school. Principal Deanna Burney faces a daily struggle with budgets, staff morale, dangerous incidents, and the seemingly unsolvable--not to mention neverending--problems that rain down on her. Winner of an Academy Award for Best Documentary, I AM A PROMISE: THE CHILDREN OF STANTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL offers a brutal snapshot of the failings of the American school system.
