China is starting to be really alarmed at the unintended consequences of the One Child Policy.

In 2012 over 13,600 primary schools closed and the number of students dropped from 200 million to 145 million.

The elderly people are now standing at 192 millions and by 2025 this number will increase to over 300 million.
