Some children were better protected than others. Meng Keyou started school at nine, two years later than his peers, because his parents thought it was too dangerous for a seven-year-old to climb up and down a cliff, where a fall could be fatal.

Meng Qiuyan, 11 at the time, remembers an older girl who fell from the cliff on her way to school. "Fortunately she was caught by rocks and trees. A teacher rushed to her rescue, but she has a long scar on her forehead until today."
