  • Special Events : “Who Cares About Kelsey?”

    Date: Monday, April 24, 2017 — 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
    Dan Habib’s film “Who Cares about Kelsey?” tells the story of Kelsey’s transformation from a defiant and disruptive “problem student” to a motivated and selfconfident 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. Includes Q & A with a PACER advocate.
