Weibo users reported the demonstration at the entrance of Fengtai District Education Commission in Beijing by elementary school age kids who are not eligible because they don’t have Beijing hukou.
The signs run, “I want to go to school.”
Their parents are migrant workers from outside Beijing. The municipal government’s attack last summer on local migrant schools has left about 14,000 kids out of school.
“Grandpa Wen: we want to go to school!”
“Our kids need to go to school!”
The protest reportedly lasted for a day.
