New horizons opened for special students


Hearing and visually impaired graduates pay tribute to pioneer in education


In October, Li Qin, principal of Sanming Special Education School in Fujian province, was reunited with students he started teaching in 1992 who all have hearing difficulties.


Both the former students and Li shared many touching moments that day. When Li and four other teachers entered a room reserved for their reunion, the lights were turned on and several graduates presented them with bouquets.

The students had prepared a cake and were wearing T-shirts that marked the 20th anniversary of their graduation.


When it opened 28 years ago, the school offered nine years of compulsory education to hearing and visually impaired students. In 2006, the period was extended to 12 years to include technical education.
