DHARAMSHALA, Feb. 21: The seventh Tibetan General Conference on Education plans to take up the challenges posed by the dwindling number of Tibetan students in exile schools among other key agendas.

The three-day conference is going to be held from February 23 to February 25, 2019, at the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) Secretariat conference hall. An estimated 250 participants comprising of principals, directors, teachers and counsellors from 76 Tibetan schools in Nepal and India are set to attend. Representatives from weekend schools from five countries in the west will also participate in the conference.

Tibetan Children’s Village (TCV), Central School for Tibetans (CST), Sambhota Tibetan Schools Society, Tibetan Homes Foundation, and The Snow Lion Foundation are the key participants.

The other agendas the conference seeks to address are; how to enhance the caliber of principles and headmasters, ways to improve the Basic Education Policy for Tibetans in exile while adding “secular ethics” to the policy and to change the existing outlook towards vocational education in the schools.

CTA President Dr Lobsang Sangay is set to preside over at the inaugural ceremony of the conference as the chief guest, while the Speaker of the Tibetan Parliament, the standing committee and other members of the exile administrations and heads of various autonomous bodies of the CTA are expected to attend.

The conference will feature talks by experts on the key agendas in the morning followed by discussion in the evening.

The general conference on education is the largest gathering of teachers and school administrators on the education policy of the Tibetan exile community, organized by the Department of Education, CTA once every five years.

The education board in exile is also one of the four groups organizing the ceremony of long life offering to His Holiness the Dalai Lama on February 27 at the Dalai Lama temple.

It is to be followed by the second general body meeting of parents on February 28 and March 1, 2019.

The first Tibetan general conference on education was held in 1964 during the nascent stage of the Tibetan exile community. The last general conference was held in 2014.
