The leading candidates for election are back to school to be cross-questioned by a group of 20 kids. Will they pass the test?
In each episode, one candidate running for election is facing 20 kids in their classroom.
Political questions, practical exercise, English test, general knowledge quiz…One after another, they will not be spared.
Are children better interviewers than journalists? Will their innocence bring the truth and the reality behind the candidates’ public speeches and under-control image?
