School demolition

Two young girls play in the rubble of a demolished schoolyard on Aug. 15 at the site of the former Houbajia Village Primary School in Beijing.

The school was demolished on short notice due to a leasing conflict, leaving many parents and students wondering where and when school would resume following summer vacation.
