An elementary school in China has just one teacher and one pupil. Li Yongchun, 61, has been teaching at the school in Dasu village, Longjing region for over 25 years.

"In 2000, the city education bureau decided to shut down the school after the graduation of the last student. New kids can register and board at another school in nearby Sanhe town, which is a two-hour drive away."

But the family of a third grader named Han Hongyang can't afford the boarding fee, so she became the last remaining student.

"We have been like this for more than half a year. She is my only student, and I'm her only teacher," says teacher Li.

Teacher Li teaches his student six subjects - Chinese, Mathematics, Korean, History, Geography and PE.
