Yearender: Rapid development of inland education of Tibetan students

The recent years have witnessed remarkable results in the development of inland Tibetan classes.

Since 1985, China has started to send Tibetan students to study at high schools in inland cities, in the hope of training more professionals for the underdeveloped plateau region and subsequently boosting Tibet's development.

Now inland Tibetan class has played a very important role in the education of Tibetan students.

According to the white paper on the Development and Progress of Tibet issued this year, in China 26 senior and junior middle schools in 20 provinces and municipalities directly under the Central Government have classes specially for Tibetan students; 60 key senior middle schools enroll students with registered permanent residence in Tibet; 48 state-level demonstration secondary vocational technical schools and 170 institutions of higher learning enroll students from the Tibetan classes.

These schools and universities have accumulatively enrolled 42,040 junior middle school students, 47,492 senior middle school students (secondary vocational school students), and 16,100 undergraduate students. Currently, inland Tibetan classes have 42,460 students.

There is no doubt that inland class has become an important supplement to the education of Tibetan students.

Besides, the Chinese government started a new round of aid-Tibet education programs in 2011.

It was reported that the new round of aid-Tibet education programs confirmed that 27 inland universities including Peking University, Renmin University of China were required to assist 6 colleges and universities in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region.

Until January this year, there have been 1,641 aid-Tibet education projects and over 6,000 people having been trained. More than 870,000 volumes of books and materials have been donated for Tibet's education.
