Students in all primary schools and middle schools in Tibet started their new term on Monday. Before the democratic reform in Tibet, the enrollment rate for school-age children was less than 2 percent, while the illiteracy rate was as high as 95 percent. During the past 50 years, the central government has invested a huge amount of funds in education in Tibet, making Tibet the first place in China to enjoy free compulsory education in both urban and rural areas. Nowadays, more than 98.5 percent of the Tibetan children had access to primary schools, 92.5 percent to junior high schools, and 51.2 percent to senior high schools.
