Time for School Series
Slideshow: Through the Years

In the Time for School Series, WIDE ANGLE follows seven kids from seven countries from their first day at school to what will hopefully be their high school graduation, to show the struggles and rewards of getting an education. Meet Joab from Kenya, Shugufa from Afghanistan, Raluca from Romania, Jefferson from Brazil, Neeraj from India, Ken from Japan, and Nanavi from Benin. This slideshow shows how the kids have grown — from our first meeting in 2003, to our return in 2006, and the most recent visit, in 2009.
