Netizens in China Compile List of Schools Collapsed in Earthquake
Several Chinese residents are compiling a list of school buildings that collapsed during the recent Sichuan earthquake, in an effort to shine a light on any potential wrongdoing by contractors and officials in constructing the buildings.
Thousands of school children died in the earthquake, during which nearly 7,000 classrooms collapsed.
Many are questioning why so many school buildings went down while government office buildings nearby remained standing.
Some netizens started compiling information on collapsed school buildings as well as government buildings and have asked more people to join the effort.
