The company in a blog post said,
“For many years, Netflix has allowed teachers to screen documentaries in their classrooms. However, this isn’t possible with schools closed.” The title of the post is “Responding to teachers” request for access to documentaries. So, the teachers requested to make a selection of the documentary features and series which are available on Netflix.
The blog adds,
“Each title also has educational resources available, which can be used by both students and teachers – and we’ll be doing Q&As with some of the creators behind these projects so that students can hear from them first-hand… We hope this will, in a small way, help teachers around the world… Note these documentaries are currently available in English. Subtitles in more than a dozen languages will be available later this week. Also if you are a parent or teacher, please check the ratings so that you can make informed choices for your students and children.”
