To go with China-family-social-population,FEATURE by Neil Connor
This photo taken on April 17, 2015 shows children playing in the schoolyard of the once-bustling Technical Secondary School in Rudong, Jiangsu province. Rusty padlocks seal empty classrooms and blank graduation certificates litter a dusty, silent school corridor in Rudong, a haunting glimpse of China’s ageing future in a town which pioneered the one-child policy. One fifth of Rudong’s million-strong population is above 65 years old, making it the first place in China to be classified as “super-elderly”, according to state media.
