Make-shift dim classrooms impair pupils' eyesight
Updated: 2004-04-20 15:17

Pupils have to study in make-shift classrooms in Shaoyang County, central China's Hunan Province April 20, 2004. Their school,constructed in the 1960s, was abandoned after being declared on the verge of collapse more than two months ago, but the villagers and the Xiahuaqiao town government in the poverty-stricken county could not afford to build a new school for the kids. Teachers say the eyesight of the pupils are deteriorating because they have to study in the wet and dim rooms. [newsphoto]

About 50 pupils have to share a 15-square-meter classroom, and they have to climb over the desks since there is no space for a passage. [newsphoto]  

The girl tries to read the blackboard in the dim classroom. [newsphoto]

The students enjoy the sunshine during breaks. [newsphoto]
