Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that On the Way to School is a 2013 documentary in which four kids from different parts of the world -- Kenya, Morocco, Argentina, and India -- are filmed traveling tremendous lengths over difficult terrain to attend school. Not only should this put things into perspective for kids prone to complaining about going to school, but it also might even humble parents (or grandparents) fond of telling "When I was your age, I walked two miles to school each day" anecdotes. There is some peril -- a little girl sprains her ankle along the mountainous rocky terrain between her home and her school in Morocco, and two boys must run for cover when they fear that a herd of elephants is stampeding toward them. Overall, this documentary shows the difficulties many kids face simply to attend a school, something many families in more developed countries take for granted.
