A fully functional system of senior high school education has been established in Tibet and a large number of skilled students have been fostered for Tibet's further development.
High school education in Tibet has obtained remarkable achievement during the ten-year period from 2000 to 2010: there are five senior high schools with online curriculums, three having satellite teaching system, and educational resources could be shared across Tibet.
"Both living and learning conditions in my school have been improved a lot and our learning equipments are as good as those in inland, which motivate us to work harder," said a student from Lhasa No.1 Middle School.
In addition, a series of educational policies has been carried out in Tibet’s senior high schools: "three guarantee" policy, which has been implemented since 1985, provids a better learning atmosphere and benefited a number of children of farmers and herdsmen in wild rural areas across Tibet.
"Thanks to the policy, my daughter who studies in one urban senior high school could enjoy a free senior high school education. She gets extra subsidy every month. What a wonderful policy! " one parent named Chodron said.
Besides educational policies mentioned above, Tibet has fostered a larger number of teachers for senior high schools. By the end of 2009, there were 13,454 full-time teachers in ordinary senior high schools, increasing by 25% than in 2000.
According to the fifth educational session held in 2012, Tibet will popularize senior high school education in five years and enlarge the enrollment of senior high school students in 2015. According to this target, the number of senior high school students will reach 140,000, while the ratio of ordinary senior high school student to secondary occupation education student will reach to 4: 6 in five years.
