Time for School: 2003 - 2016 puts a human face on an underreported 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 from for 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.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
