The Providence Effect

provpostThe Providence Effect, an award-winning documentary about Providence-St. Mel, a small school in Chicago’s gritty East Garfield Park that has achieved an incredible 100% college acceptance rate against all odds.

The movie centers on the equally inspiring journey of the school’s principal Paul J. Adams III, who has challenged the Chicago school system for 30 years with his revolutionary approaches to teaching, and also founded the Providence Englewood Charter School. Of course the Obamas and Oprah have been sent copies to view in their personal screening rooms, but the film opens in select theaters nationwide this Friday.
