PBS getting new ‘Angle’ on school

Show follows kids from 1st grade to high school graduation

PBS weekly doc series “Wide Angle” is going back to school this fall.

Series has launched a 12-year project in which it will profile six children around the world as they enroll in their first year of school.

As with Michael Apted’s “7 Up” film series, “Wide Angle” team will follow these six children over time, following their progress through secondary school graduation in 2015.

Mission of “Time for School” is to illustrate how difficult pursuing an education can be around the world. In developing countries, 25% drop out before completing four years of education. Series will feature kids in Japan, India, Kenya, Benin, Romania and Brazil.

“Time for School” will be produced by Judy Katz. “Wide Angle” is hosted by Jamie Rubin and Mishal Husain.

PBS will air the first part of series Sept. 4.
