China's one-child policy imposed between 1980 and 2015 has dug itself in a big demographic hole. 

In 2021, China raised the limit to three, but even during stay-at-home COVID time, couples were reluctant to have babies. The requirement for women to be legally married to register their children has also been removed.

China's birth rate in 2022 fell to 6.77 births per 1,000 people, from 7.52 births in 2021, the lowest on record. Worrying about this major concern due to years long policy, schools in china have come up with a unique solutions.
