Revealing how this will happen, a press release, Netflix says
“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 the students can hear from them first hand”

End of a Sentence, The White Helmets, and Zion. They are available in English and Netflix states that Subtitles in more than a dozen languages will be available later in the week”
