Number of Times Seen – 1 (9 Nov 2015)

Brief Synopsis – Oscar winning documentary about a unique school in Tel Aviv that is solely for refugees.

My Take on it – This is one of those little stories that is easily missed and it’s really good that they made a movie to help disseminate the idea of this unique school that should be an example worldwide of how countries can help to educate refugees living within their borders.

I was really impressed by the way the students and teachers describe the kind of education this school provides and it’s easy to see how much hard work both sides contribute to making this school such a success.

I was even surprised by one scene that even featured an eye doctor that I know personally.

Certain scenes are wuite emotional and they definitely got the tone right throughout.

Bottom Line – Very good story that really needs to be known. The amount of work that these teachers and educators give day in and day out seems so rewarding to both them and the students who have found themselves stranded in a foreign country with little chances to get educated. Recommended!
