Still image from Early Life: My First Day At School

Three children face their first day at school–but are their lives already set on different courses? Scientists suggest that how the brain develops in the first years of life may affect kids' ability to prosper at school. Follows three children as they prepare to enter primary school in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Their dilemmas reflect those of Thailand as a whole: How can a country with its own culture-specific childhood traditions prepare its kids for the new globalized society? Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) audio description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
