Amazing what these little children would do to get educated.

How is this new ladder any safer? Couldn't they just create a new school for these kids in their village so that they wouldn't have to climb that ladder? :P

Survival of the fittest.
Those who want it bad enough and got what it takes will make it.

That's China at its best!

There is some more info and pics in the link below:

This is a small ethnic minority. These villagers live on the top of a mountain and apparently, there is no space to build a school there. The school is at the bottom of the mountain. The kids live in the school and go home 3 times in the school year for holidays. The villagers do not want to move to another area to live, they have always lived there, I assume.

 

Education is extremely valued in China from Confucian times. This is the best proof of it.
