School children in Gansu

These are some of the pictures I took during my dissertation research in the fall of 2004 in rural schools around Gansu. In the early morning before school starts children at a small "teaching point" school practice the characters they have just learned by scratching them in the earth.
Happy children in a Hui minority autonomous county.

This teacher in a remote mountain school has two classes of students. In the upper grade class he has only three students. In this mathematics lesson he calls all of his students to the blackboard to work on the problems under his supervision.
There are more students in the multigrade classroom for the lower grades.

Pretty in pink.
