School's out forever for migrant workers' children
Issued on: Modified:
If you are a parent, imagine how you would feel if the authorities suddenly told you your child's school was shut, closing down, with nowhere else for your offspring to go. Well that's exactly what happened in China, where more than 20 schools for children of migrant workers have shut down in Beijing. Now parents and NGOs are working together to hit back at what they say is a policy of social exclusion.
