Tibet to build 250 bilingual kindergartens

Lhasa, Feb 26 (IANS): Tibetan authorities are set to build 250 bilingual kindergartens in rural areas by 2020, a media report said on Friday.

The regional government will increase the gross enrolment ratio in pre-school education to 80 percent during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-20), the Global Times reported.

Authorities also guaranteed that all schools will feature instruction in two languages, Tibetan and Chinese.

"We will hire and train more teachers who are fluent in both Tibetan and Chinese, and promote exchanges between teachers in rural areas and cities," an official in charge of elementary education said.

A total of 1,000 teachers for bilingual education and disciplines that lack faculty will be trained.

At present, there are 87,951 students in 882 kindergartens with 4,118 teachers in Tibet.
