In China, economy is booming, however, this may not be in the favor of poor Chinese families trying to provide their children with an education. In the picture you see above, the Mr. Wu and his daughter are depicted. They are a poor family living in a rural part of China. Mr. Wu and his wife have sacrificed everything they have just to provide their daughter with an education. The parents of Ms. Wu have had to sacrifice their vacations, lifestyle, trips, and the type of apartment they live in just to be able to afford college for their child. They try to save as much money as possible, they have even gone to the point of avoiding bus fares and staying home over the holiday's. In addition, tuition for high school for this family wasn't serving them well either. They had to pay $165 a semester, and food was $8 a week. A lot of money for a poor family. They had to pay this because there are almost no public schools in China, so many boarding schools have taken over and are charging fees to the families that enroll their children in them.
