A quake-hardened school, built by a conscientious Chinese principal

Unfortunately the bad most definitely outweighs the good. But the good must be acknowledged.

Way to go "Angel Ye". You deserve a medal.
A principal known as "Angel Ye" scraped together tens of thousands of dollars to correct shoddy construction at his small-town middle school in Sichuan. As a result, none of his students died in the earthquake, but his success has put a spotlight on the less fortunate.

Would that more principals had been so concerned about the welfare of the children for whom they were responsible. It had to have been no small feat to gather tens of thousands of dollars but he did it and it paid off.
