Winner of the 1992 Academy Award for best documentary short subject, Educating Peter by producer/director Gerardine Wurzburg follows a young boy with Down syndrome through third grade in a regular class in his Blacksburg, VA, elementary school. The child, Peter, tests the limits with his classmates and teacher, who struggle with the challenges posed by his disability. 

This heartwrenching and inspirational video chronicles the school year of Mrs. Stallings' third grade class, from their first harrowing week, through tribulations and discovery. Finally Mrs. Stallings, Peter and her other students find the rewards and triumphs of educating Peter.

Educating Peter (02:09)
Peter Gwazdauska has Down Syndrome, and until this year he attended classes with children like himeslf. Educating Peter is the story of Peter's first year in a regular classroom with normal children. The first week of classes in Mrs. Stallings' third grade class is probably the most harrowing in the lives of many of these children. However after many tribulations and a great deal of planning, Mts. Stallings, her students, and Peter grow to accept, trust and learn from each other.
