» Film Series. "The First Grader"
The First Grader (2010), presented by Dr. Donnie Kirk. Rated PG-13.
In a small, remote mountaintop primary school in the Kenyan bush, hundreds of children are jostling for a chance for the free education newly promised by the Kenyan government. One applicant causes astonishment -- he is Maruge, an old Mau Mau veteran in his 80s, who is desperate to learn to read at this late stage of his life. He fought for the liberation of his country and now feels he must have the chance at the education so long denied -- even if it means sitting in a classroom alongside 6-year-old children.
