Children with special needs and their teacher mount a tireless battle to shift the tide toward the acceptance of people who are different. Accepting their uniqueness and sharing in their private world, while engaging them in the real world, Tina
gives them a chance at learning and life. Despite challenges and lack of support, her commitment to reach, teach and inspire never wavers. MORE HEAVEN is based on a real pioneer program in Philadelphia public school in response to the 1975 Education for the Handicapped Act, ruling that US public schools educate all children. The experiment, begun in chaotic uncharted waters paves the way for inclusionary education practices and social acceptance of children and adults with special needs-a road that continues to need paving.
