Meet the young boy who's the only student of a rural Chinese school

Liu Jiankang, a lil boy from China, is reportedly the only student at his school Taohuagou Teaching Academy. The in rural school in Hubei province  used to boast of over 300 students and about 30 teachers, is today left with just one student and one  teacher 58-year-old Liu Zhaoming.

Zhaoming has been teaching at the school for around 38 years. He even has lunch with Liu Jiankang.  He says that with increasing numbers of parents moving to bigger cities for work, numbers of students have decreased. This is the case for Liu Jiankang whose parents work in a bigger city far away. Because of this, he is left behind and looked after by his grandparents.
