Left-behind child one of thousands

Long Zhanghuan, a 10-year-old girl, plays with one of her cousins at home in Youhao village, Fenghuang county in Central China's Hunan province, Oct 24, 2011. Long and her five-year-old brother have been living with their grandparents since her parents divorced five years ago. Her grandparents are raising eight of their grandchildren whose parents have travelled away from the village to find work. According to statistics from the local education bureau, the county, Fenghuang, has 46,207 primary and secondary school students, of which 24,225 are the left-behind children of migrant workers.
