I can't believe there are still students who are studying in such terrible conditions. I learned from a photo news that this village school is located in Daliang mountain, Sichuan province. There are only 14 students and one teacher,11 tables and 11 stools. They are all of Yi minority group.

The village "Si Ji ji" is 3,000 meters above the sea level. So the village looks as if it were on the cloud all through the year. In 2011, it's listed as "The top 100 most beautiful village in Sichuan". At present, the local government is developing tourism around the area.

The Yi tradition is to have at least one boy in a family. So it's common to see brothers and sisters in the village.

Jike Ali is the only teacher in the school. He graduated from a local normal school. He hasn't got the teacher's qualification certificate for his accented mandarine. Two years ago, a school principal found him and asked him to teach on Daliang mountain. He became the very first teacher with a diploma.
