Time For School - Watch seven students from around the world and their path to getting an education.
PBS:  Documentaries from around the world. TIME FOR SCHOOL was a PBS series made by Wide Angle about education from around the world. It shows the difficulty of going to school in third world countries compared to other countries like Japan or Romania. Very powerful and good to use in the classroom where kids take their education for granted, and hopefully inspire them to take their education seriously.
 
The following videos used to be in chronological order, but now they are mixed. You will see students at different stages of their lives in all three of the episodes.

Part One  The story of seven young children and their struggle to stay in school.

Part Two  A follow up on the kids as they get older and some of them drop out of school.

Part Three  A very crucial part of their lives where many quit school to work to help their families.
