In this media gallery, meet Jefferson, a child of the Rochinca favela, who in second grade is one of the few students in his class who can read and write. Follow Jefferson over 12 years as he struggles to overcome poverty and stay in school. Check out the entire collection of resources from the documentary "Time For School" here.
