"Grandpa Wen, We Wan't to Go to School!"


Referring to Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, these children of migrant workers in Beijing beg to go to school.  Compare their attitude with that of  Western kids, and you see the beauty of the laobaixin (common people) of China.

In China, migrant workers and their children do not have rights to health care, education, or legal protection because they are not on the hukou (family registration) system of the town that they have migrated to.
