Crowded classrooms

Sixth Tone reports on overcrowded conditions at Chinese schools: In central China’s populous Henan Province, one primary school has an average of 113 pupils per classroom, and a middle school has an average class size of 109 students. The article says that “disparity also exists between economically advanced eastern coastal areas and poorer provinces in central and western China, where overcrowded classes are more common.”
