Description

This work provides a comprehensive overview of education provision and policy in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) during the half century since China asserted control over the region. Catriona Bass sets her modern history of education in the TAR against the wider context of the political and educational shifts which have taken place in China since the Communist Party came to power in 1949. She presents the best information available about each educational sector, focusing on access, funding, quality of provision, the little known role of the monasteries in education and the controversial issue of the medium of instruction. She draws on first-hand observation, interviews with Tibetan refugees and with educationalists in China and Tibet, and official sources in both Chinese and Tibetan. Some of the statistical data presented here has not been made available outside China before.
