World School

Every year, thousands of Canadian teachers make an important decision in their careers and personal lives. They head overseas to teach at Canadian-style schools, even if it means sacrificing relationships and job opportunities at home. Why do they do it? What kinds of adventures do they encounter along the way? Will they survive their new surroundings?

World School travels to Malaysia to follow the story of a group of Canadian school teachers who teach at a Canadian-style high school in Kuala Lumpur. After their first year overseas, we find out who didn’t make it to the end, who made the most of their assignment, and who’s ready to stay for longer.
