The municipal government of Zhaotong in Yunnan province recently made an announcement to address the severe teacher shortage at one rural primary school.

An Internet user wrote to People's Daily Online, and explained that Xiao Zhai Primary School had a headmaster and just one teacher, who were together in charge of six classes with over 100 students. The netizen called on the provincial government of Yunnan to help deal with the situation.

According to the municipal government's announcement, Xiao Zhai Primary School previously had six teachers. In September, two teachers asked for sick leave and two others were transferred to other schools. To address the shortage, the school recruited four new teachers, who started work on Sept. 30. On Oct.8, the original two teachers came back to school. The school's staff has now resumed normal teaching duties.
