Time for School 1x85

Time for School: 2003 – 2016 puts a human face on an under-reported global crisis, by spotlighting the journey of five extraordinary children in five countries as they struggle to get a basic education. Time for School introduces viewers to Nanavi in Benin; Jefferson in Brazil; Neeraj in India; Joab in Kenya; and Shugufa in Afghanistan on their first days of school and follows them over the next 12 years. Told primarily through the point of view of the children and their families, Time for School presents the contrasting lives of those who were forced to abandon schooling and those who are still following their dreams. It tells a gripping story of what’s at stake when war, abject poverty, or just being a girl stands between a child and the simple promise of a basic education.
