Incredible and Unusual Schools Around the World

A focus on children for whom school is a privilege they don’t take for granted: studying in a Nepalese refugee camp; a portable bamboo structure for migrant workers in Thailand; and a Canadian “green” school, where kids have reusable lunch bags and water bottles, and a goal of eliminating garbage. Fascinating stories accompany vivid photos and factoids: many girls in Kenya are “married” before they’re even born, in exchange for cattle; sixty million girls worldwide miss out on school largely because of their community’s beliefs. Packed with valuable lessons. Ages nine to thirteen.
