PACER Center to screen award-winning documentary Who Cares About Kelsey?

Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer a screening of the film Who Cares About Kelsey? by filmmaker Dan Habib from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, April 24 at PACER Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington. This free workshop is for parents of children with disabilities.

Kelsey Carroll has one goal — to graduate from high school — and plenty of reasons why she shouldn’t. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, sexual abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn’t earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs.

Who Cares About Kelsey? is the story of Kelsey’s transformation from a defiant and disruptive “problem student” to a motivated and self-confident young woman. Along the way, critical figures in her personal and educational life shape her coming of age, and play important roles in an education revolution that’s about empowering — not overpowering — youth with emotional and behavioral challenges.

A question-and-answer session with a PACER advocate will follow the film. For information and to view the trailer, visit whocaresaboutkelsey.com.

To register for this free workshop, contact PACER Center at (952) 838-9000 or (800) 537-2237 (toll free), email [email protected], or visit PACER.org/workshops.
