Li tried in vain for years to get interest-free loan from the government to improve the kindergarten's facilities, Li's brother said.

Apparently, Li is still in debt and could only afford to buy four second-hand vans for bringing the children to school. It had 737 students before the accident, reports said.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, an official surnamed Zhou from the emergency response office of Qingyang city government told China Daily that families of the 19 children who died in the fatal traffic accident had signed the compensation contract and each of them will receive 436,000 yuan for their loss.

He did not respond to questions about whether the family of the teacher who died in the collision would be compensated too.

The city government also pledged to allocate 680 million yuan to build at least 155 kindergartens in the next three years and ensure that every town will have a public kindergarten equipped with a school bus that meets safety requirements, according to a statement released on its official website on Friday.

The statement said that the city government would suspend the plan of vehicle purchases for its officials in 2012 and use the money to buy more school buses.
