Migrant kids' schools get warning

All local private schools which cater to migrant workers' children have been told to improve their facilities or management.

Checks will be launched from next Monday to supervise the improvements, according to a notice issued by the Shanghai Education Commission yesterday.

Local education authorities carried out inspections in 151 migrant children's schools earlier this year and found that "100 percent of the schools had potential safety risks," said Yang Yongming, a commission official in charge of youth safety.

Some schools reported severe hazardous problems, including a lack of emergency staircases, open electric wires, uneven ground and sharp angles on blackboards.

The schools were ordered to upgrade their facilities during the past summer break and those who couldn't afford the expense could appeal to their district governments for funds, Yang said.

Shanghai became the first city in China to provide free education for migrant children this semester.
