Despite the low family income and the one-child policy, most families still raise 3 to 6 children. In the past, a lot of children could not afford the school fees and missed school. Since September 2001, the Government of Guangdong Province has granted subsides for school fees to the poorest families and solves the attendance problem up to Year 9. This applies to children who have birth certificate and register with the government. Unregistered children have to seek sponsorship to go to school. In recent years more and more children attend high school in Qingyuan, but some students are discouraged by their parents to continue education due to financial issues.
