School Violence: In Only an Instant

School Violence: In Only an Instant

"Recommended! Unfortunately, violence in school is a topic that needs to be addressed, by educators, administrators, parents and students.

Summer Camp (Juvenile Probation)

Summer Camp (Juvenile Probation)

"Highly Recommended. This is an excellent eye-opening documentary.
