DHARAMSHALA, January 8: The third phase of transfer of schools from Central Tibetan Schools Administration (CTSA) to Sambhota Tibetan Schools Society (STSS) under the Depart of Education of CTA will include eight schools: three Senior Secondary and five Secondary Schools, the President of the Central Tibetan Administration announced today.

Dr. Lobsang Sangay at a press conference today at Gangchen Kyishong said that the eight Central School for Tibetans (CST) included Mundgod, Bylakuppe, Dholanji, Kollegal, CVP Bylakuppe, Chandragiri, Gurupura and Sonada, and the transfer is scheduled to be completed by next month.

“The schools in the third phase are mostly situated in Tibetan settlements and more importantly it is for the first time we are taking the custody of Secondary and Senior Secondary Schools,” President Sangay said.

Thanking the Indian government for their constant support, Sikyong said that the main reasons for requesting the transfer under the umbrella of CTA is to raise the standard of education in Tibetan schools and that the schools managed by Tibetans comparatively yield better results in all India Secondary and Senior Secondary examination than schools under CTSA.

Acknowledging a declining rate of Tibetan students in Tibetan schools the President said that it does raise the need to reduce the number of Tibetan schools. However, he stated that decision on closing schools is a complicated matter.

“It is a fact that the number of schools should be reduced. However, the discussion on which school to be closed is still ongoing. It would be illogical to keep a school running with small number of students. The decision of closing some schools may not be welcomed by all but it will be beneficial in the future. So, a certain decisions will be taken,” Sikyong said.

The decision of transfer of schools from CTSA to STSS was taken by the Indian government’s Ministry of Human Resources Development in 2013. Currently in its third phase, the CTA will soon have recruitment drive to fill the 158 job vacancies in the eight schools and the last date of submission of application has been set as February 2.

In the first phase, a total of 33 pre-primary section and four primary schools were transferred in December 2013 and the second phase saw transfer of five primary and five Middle Schools in July 2016.

In the HRD ministry’s announcement of transfer, it said that CTA would be provided funds at the rate of Rs. 43 crore per annum plus an annual increment of 5 percent . The transfer would benefit 2220 residential students and 6455 day-scholars through better focus on their educational needs. In turn the government of India would save Rs. 69.29 crore over a 5 year period.
