Chinese Government Upgrade Ladder for Kids to Climb to School, But Is It Enough?


A school journey that required children to climb a rock face in China is now being upgraded after it gained notoriety online globally.

A new ladder is being provided for kids - from a remote village in Sichuan province - to climb the 800m cliff face.

According to China Daily, The local government ensures the children - around the age of 6 to 15 - will now have a stronger ladder to climb.

The treacherous two hour journey that leads to the cliff climb is undertaken every two weeks, so the students can attend boarding school.

Though a ladder would help, the students still face a dangerous voyage through snake-infested jungle and a 50m dark tunnel.

It begs the question have the government done enough and if not will they face another backlash?
