Our time in China has come to an end! The last three and a half weeks have really flown by.
A few things I've learned so far...
Migrant workers face many different challenges when they try to change their hukou status (such as having to leave their children with grandparents in order to earn money, or risk coming with their children so they can receive a better education but leave them alone for more then 12 hours of the day)
Once cities grow migrant workers are forced and pressured to move to the outskirts of town so they always are in the most undeveloped areas.
In rural areas, kids (mostly minorities) have to travel in dangerous conditions to reach their school. And if your families tries to move to the cities and change their hukou the kids are treated as "second class students"
China does not give it's citizens access to anything that China does badly. Communism is the only way to think and it is dangerous to speak critically of it.
Mental health is not something that is spoken about in schools. Many students as young as in middle school commit suicide off of school buildings and it is not spoken of at home or in schools.
To recap our time here's an amazing video made by Charlotte Clarke below!
