Education Hard for Migrant Workers' Children

A recent survey conducted in east China's Qingdao shows most migrant workers' children find it hard to get an education in the city.

The results show only 15 percent of migrant workers' children manage to get education in the city and stay with their migrant parents.

Many interviewees say the main problem is financial and they are hoping to get assistance from the government and society.

The Qingdao government has issued regulations banning all schools from refusing migrant workers' children.

In the meantime, it asks them to charge the same tuition fee as those children from the city.
