In this revealing film, Peter Gwadauskas, a young boy with Down Syndrome and his classmates test the limits of a new federal law that requires mainstreaming handicapped children in public schools. Educating Peter chronicles the school year of Mrs. Stallings‘ third grade class. Their first week together is perhaps the most traumatic in the lives of any of these children. However, after man tribulations and a great deal of planning, Mrs. Stallings and the students (and Peter) discover the triumphs and rewards of educating Peter.
