Education/Literacy in Tibet

The Chinese began formal schooling, something that was previously nonexistent in Tibet, in the early 1950's.  Most of the population was illiterate at that time, with even the Tibetan monks memorizing scriptures rather than learning to read them.  Since formal education's introduction in 1952, there are now over 3,000 schools with several institutions of higher learning (in Lhasa).  The literacy rate, which was extremely low, increased to about 50%.  In schools, Tibetan is language spoken in the lower grades with the emphasis changing to Putonghua in the upper grades.
