I Am a PromiseDVD
This Academy Award winning documentary from director Susan Raymond follows the students of Stanton Elementary School in the low-income neighborhood of North Philadelphia, and the struggles and hardships that they face on a daily basis. With ninety percentof students living below the poverty line, the school's principal Deanna Burney faces daily issues with staff morale, budget crises, and dangerous occurrences that never seem to end. With little to nothing positive to look forward to in their own community, the children's only hope is that they receive a successful education and be the change they wish to see.
