After this Minneapolis school ranked at the bottom of the state’s list of underperforming schools for two decades, its principal set out to change the culture and expectations among students, teachers and parents. Calling the challenge “Mission Possible,” she started with a decision to love all of the students, making them feel safe and accepted. This multi-award winning film follows the principal, parents and students for a year, documenting the challenges they face in a state that has the largest achievement gap between black and white children in the U.S. An important subject inspiring, heartwarming and hopeful.
