The activist who wants bring refugee stories to the classroom

Onjali Rauf has dedicated the last three years to helping refugees in camps in France. Now she wants to help nine-year-old's to understand the refugee crisis from the classroom with her book called "The Boy At The Back Of The Class". It follows a refugee boy as he tries to fit into British school life. She's just returned from her latest visit to France and came into the studio to tell Newsday's James Copnall more about her work. She started with an excerpt from the book.
