After the long summer break, some children and even some parents dread the first day back at school. What is the reason behind this feeling and what can be done to improve it? We seek answers from teachers, parents and experts.

In this episode of Learning World, we explore the world of schooling – from long school days and short school weeks in France, to surviving that first day back at school after the holidays, and we take a look at the rigorous education system in Japan.

You can share your experiences of going back to school on our social media pages.
