Ministry demands action over delayed school heating

By Hou Liqiang in Beijing and Zhang Yu in Shijiazhuang | China Daily | Updated: 2017-12-07 07:22

The Ministry of Education demanded "immediate" action on Wednesday to ensure school classrooms are warm enough after media reports said a delayed heating supply in Hebei province resulted in students showing symptoms of frostbite.

China Youth Daily reported on Tuesday that the heating supply in some rural primary schools in Hebei's Quyang county has been delayed, forcing students to attend classes outside in the sun in a bid to keep warm.

Some primary school students were seen standing up reading books and others kneeling or sitting on the ground, using stools as desks, in a China Youth Daily video.
