Photographer's Note

A streetside blackboard in Tongli. You sometimes see these in old Chinese towns, blackboards along the street (or in private homes) - teaching outside the classroom, outdoor schools.

Interesting also how all ideologies like to keep a close eye on education. Here a communist star, there a crucifix; here a religious slogan, there a politician.


This picture was taken in Tongli, an old canal town, just a couple of hours north from Shanghai.
