The new building required much larger area than the old, so in order to obtain the land needed, an elementary school that was built 10 years ago was bulldozed. The Yingquan Precinct (颍泉区) government failed to provide any money for a new school, instead, the over 200 students and the teachers are forced into half a century old buildings that are planned to be bulldozed: the doors had fallen out and there is not any glass on windows. In addition, local peasants' land was taken away without any compensation, despite the governmental promise. As a result, many peasants who lost their land are forced to turn trash collecting for living.
