A Chinese teacher has been sent to a labor camp for a year of "re-education" after he posted online photos of school buildings that collapsed during the Sichuan earthquake, the Guardian reports. The man, who was neither formally charged with a crime nor given a trial, is one of many demanding answers from the Chinese government as to why so many schools were destroyed while nearby buildings remained standing.
China has suppressed allegations that the schools were shoddily constructed as a result of corruption, stifling speculation within the state media and buying silence from protesting citizens. The teacher was detained June 25 for "disseminating rumors and destroying social order," reports a human rights group. China holds suspects in labor camps for up to 4 years; there is no appeal.
