Entry Description

Low birth rates have become a prominent feature of today's world as our population structure evolves.Due to the steep slowdown of population growth in the 21st, more schools in Taiwan can't get enough students anymore, and as a result some people demand that certain schools should be closed. In fact, even more serious social and economic problems are come due to the imbalanced structure, which results from the low birth rates.With this photography series entitled Low Birth Rate "Schools are Disappearing!", I hope to draw people's attention to this issue.
