With 175 schools destroyed, China begins to lay blame

During the quake, some huge schools became virtual tombs. The Juyuan Middle School in Dujiangyan collapsed and buried 900 students under tons of concrete. In Beichuan, northeast of the epicenter, a high school tumbled around 1,000 or so students. At the Yinghua high school in Shifang County, 300 students are yet to be located. Experts say many of the schools were built without steel reinforcement. Correction attached.
