Education in Tibet: policy and practice since 1950
This is the first book in English, or any other Western language, to give 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. The author 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. Catriona Bass presents the best information available about each educational sector, focusing on issues such as access, funding, quality of provision, the little-known role of the monasteries in education and the controversial issue of the medium of instruction. She also uses a judicious combination of sources including 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.
