Officials sacked after subsidies for children allegedly pocketed


08:57, November 28, 2012

FENGHUANG, Hunan Province, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- Five officials in central China have been removed from their posts after government subsidies for rural children's meals were suspected of being pocketed.

A teacher exposed online that children in Laershan Complete Primary School, in rural Hunan Province, received only a small piece of bread and a little bit of milk for lunch.

It was below the three yuan (48 U.S. cents) meal standard set by the government for a subsidized lunch for school children.

The county government of Fenghuang on Tuesday said two officials with its education bureau, the school's principal and two deputy principals have been sacked following the allegation.

An investigation is under way.

In a microblog post, the teacher, surnamed Liang, asked, "How can the food not leave children hungry? Besides, is that really worth three yuan?" An editorial of the Shandong-based Qilu Evening News said, "How can anyone with a conscience rip off children's subsidies like that?"
