He buys shoes and daily goods for poverty-stricken students with his own money, and he has tried every means to keep those who wanted to drop out due to economic insufficiency. "I am the only teacher in the village. And as long as there is a student, I will teach with might and main. Nothing can stop me," said Wang. "I hope these kids could fly high, to where great breadth of view and illuminating brightness of future await." (Xinhua/Lin Yiguang)
