Xiaoquan Elementary School, Xiaoquan town, Deyang, China - The Great Sichuan Earthquake on May twelfth 2008 killed at least 69,000 people. Alone in the administrative district of Deyang, one hour north of Chengdu, more than 17,000 people were killed. Due to poor construction and corruption in the building industry at least 7,000 schoolrooms collapsed in the region and caused the death of thousands of pupils. The ordinary people accused the officials and builders for the so called “tofu-dreg schools” with shoddy construction. Sloppiness and personal enrichment at the expense of structural safety caused the collapse of many schools.
