This rural school only has two students


You wouldn’t typically picture a school being this empty, but this one in rural Youyang County, near Chongqing in inland China, is so empty it only has two students and one teacher.

The teacher in charge, 53-year-old Yang Jinhua, has taught for nearly 35 years in the village elementary school since he was 18.

Despite the tiny attendance, the school has remained opened in part because of Yang’s dedication to it, according to the Chongqing Morning Post. Yang has refused jobs from principals in other counties, town centers and even corporations.
