Presented by Lhamo Dongtse (Humphrey Fellowship Program – Tibet)

In the Qing Hai province of China, there are a number of issues that complicate efforts to improve the quality of education, especially for nomadic peoples. One challenge, for example, is how to offer bilingual education to all students; minority languages are legally granted equal status to Mandarin, but national examinations favor the dominant language. Similarly, educators struggle to teach effectively using a standardized curriculum; despite wide variation in geography, agriculture, climate, language, and local customs, the same subjects are taught with the same materials throughout the country. Join Lhamo Dong Tse, a Tibetan educational leader in Qinghai province and a current Humphrey Fellow, as she addresses these and other challenges, and hear her describe how she endeavors to improve educational opportunities for her region’s most disadvantaged groups.
