Dharamshala: The Basic Education Policy will be implemented up to pre-primary level of all the 79 Tibetan schools in India, Nepal and Bhutan within three years.
And in five years, 70% of the 1650 teachers of the Tibetan schools will have received a crash-course on the Basic Education Policy.
These were announced here today by Tsering Phuntsok and Chung Tsering, the two spokespersons of the Department of Education of the Central Tibetan Administration, at a monthly briefing to the official media.
After reviewing the state of Tibetan education in exile, the Education Department formulated a basic education policy ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“based on the actual needs of the exiled TibetansÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â.
The Assembly of the Tibetan People’s Deputies approved the policy in September last year. [For complete text of the Basic Education Policy, see March-April 2005 issue of Tibetan Bulletin.]
A model school, which will make full implementation of the new education policy, has already been constructed here. [Read: Model School to Make Good on Education Policy, 23 June]
