Children attend class at the Dongzhong (literally meaning “in cave”) primary school at a Miao village in Ziyun county, southwest China’s Guizhou province, November 14, 2007. The school is built in a huge, aircraft hangar-sized natural cave, carved out of a mountain over thousands of years by wind, water and seismic shifts.
I only have one question here.Â Why?
Is it really necessary to have a school in a cave?Â Did they run out of room or something?Â Structures are built every single day in China.Â Is this to impress someone or is it really a plot by parents to send kids to a place where a rock might fall on their head and kill them.
That has to be it.

Look how dirty the books are?Â And what about hygiene for these children?
Let’s play rock ball!
The hint of light shows that someday they might just get out of slavery.
How is this not a prison?
I feel like Indiana Jones is going to come out at any moment
