It said that local journalists donated 150 thousand yuan. It's enough to buy chairs and desks for local students. However, those journalists were frightened by threats from an anonymous phone call, at last they gave up. Soon after, local Party (gov) leaders promised that they planned to invest 5 million yuan to buy new chairs and desks for the students.

It would be luxurious chairs and desks after netizens did the calculation. 5 million / 3 thousand students = 1.6 thousand yuan / chair + desk.

Sth about Macheng.

1 in 10 Red Army soldiers were from Macheng.

China's land could produce tons of grains in an acre in 1950s. This huge fake news report greatly contributed to millions of Chinese dying from starvation later. It was first forged from Macheng.

A large amount of local officials including number 1 leader were arrested by the Party commission in 2009.

An apartment with 2 bedrooms is about 400 thousand yuan in Macheng. (4 thousand per Sqm)

Macheng is on the list of cities under the poverty line in China. Central government gave it at least 40 million yuan as a special help to cities under poverty line every year.

Macheng gov said that it planned to invest 12 million to plant new trees in urban area in 2012.

Macheng governor leading a group of officials checked in 5 star hotel of Hangzhou for a conference in Sep 5, 2012.

I don't think you should mix up the issues of rural poverty and building expenses - the reason why building in China is so expensive lays in the real estate bubble and the officials are trying much to cool the real estate market.

Students are poor because the whole region they live in is poor, so that the respective local government can't afford giving students better facilities. It'd be better to help those students by making their entire region richer - which would be ultimatively done by improving the local infrastrucutre.

Netizens asked:
1. local government have huge amount of money to build a luxurious gov building.
2. Local gov invest 12 million yuan to plant new trees in 2012.
3. Local gov officials have money to check in 5-star hotel last week.

However, local gov have no money to buy chairs and desks for students. Actually, 3000 pair of (chairs + desks) * 50 yuan = 150 thousand yuan is enough.
