Statistics show that the enrollment rate for school-age children in Tibet has amounted to 98.5 per cent and in all there are 884 primary schools in the Tibet Autonomous Region. In 2008, 70 counties in Tibet have popularized the nine-year compulsory education and children from farming and pasturing families can enjoy free tuition as well as food and boarding expenses for students in the stage of compulsory education.

Everything is quite different from the past. 50 years ago, the enrollment of school-age children in Tibet was less than 2% while the illiterate rate came to 95%.
