DHARAMSHALA, June 6: Prominent Indian and Tibetan educationists from across India and North America are gathered in Dharamshala for a two-day meeting to provide guidance on improving the education standard of the exile Tibetan community.

The first Education Advisory Committee Meeting of Tibetan schools is being organised by the Department of Education of the Central Tibetan Administration from June 5-6.

According to a report on the CTA’s official website, Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay, who also serves as the Education Kalon, in his opening remarks said the meeting aims to “solicit profound and substantive advices” from the participants to improve and upgrade the Tibetan education system.

The Harvard law graduate further expressed his hope that the “inspiring and motivating suggestions and contributions of the advisory committee members will bring the much needed exposure and ground breaking innovations in the education system.”

Sikyong Sangay in his address also highlighted the “immense contributions” made by former Indian prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and His Holiness the Dalai Lama towards the education of Tibetan youths since 1959.

Attendees of the first Education Advisory Committee meeting include Arbind Kumar Jha, Dean, School of Education, Central University of Himachal Pradesh, Arun Kapur, noted author and Executive Director of Vasant Valley School, Prof. Krishna Kumar, former Director of NCERT and Professor of education at University of Delhi, Prof. Ramu Manivannan of Madras University, Furqan Qamar, Vice Chancellor of Central University of Himachal Pradesh, Kamala V Mukunda from Centre for learning, Bangalore and Ashok Thakur, Secretary, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development.

Tibetan educationists include Tharlam D. Changra, Principal, Ngawang Samten, a Padma Shri award recipient and Vice-Chancellor of Central University of Tibetan Studies, Sarnath, Samphe D Lhalungpa, Education consultant from Canada, Nawang B Phuntsog, Associate Professor of Education, California State University, Fullerton and Duke Tsering, Principal, Tibetan Children’s Village School, Selakui.

Representatives and heads of various Tibetan schools are also attending the meeting.

Participants at the meeting will further deliberate on the qualification and profile of a teacher, quality of education, importance of language proficiency, school management, and higher education policy.

The Education Advisory Committee was established, as part of the 14th Kashag’s prioritisation of education and academic excellence, to “provide guidance to the education department to improve the standard of education in Tibetan schools by assessing the existing situation and drawing necessary action plans.”

The Department of Education currently oversees 73 Tibetan schools – excluding the pre-primary sections and private schools – in India and Nepal under different autonomous administrative bodies. There are around 24,000 students and 2,200 staff members in these schools.
