Tibetan Parliament Issues General Appeal on Specialisation in Education

November 9, 2009

Central Tibetan Authority (CTA)
November 2, 2009

Dharamshala -- We appeal to all those who feel
concerned about the condition of Tibetan
education in general and particularly the state
of research and specialization in our exiled
community to kindly respond to the
'Questionnaire' below so as to be benefited by your valuable ideas ...

GENERAL APPEAL

His Holiness The Dalai Lama, in his address at
the anniversary function of Tibetan Children's
Village, Dharamsala on 25th October 2008, spoke
at length on the state of Tibetan education in
general and particularly focused on the lack of
satisfactory achievements in the fields of
research and specialization in exile. He said
that mere certificates of class XII or B.A / B.Sc
or M.A/M.Sc was not enough but through Research
and Specialization, one must be able to think,
plan and execute on one's own. Again, on 23rd
November 2008, while speaking to the delegates of
the first Tibetan Special General Meeting, he
re-emphasized on the same topic and said that
through research and specialization in various
fields, Tibetans must be able to work
independently and be equal with the others.

As a consequence of these guidelines, the 14th
Tibetan Parliament-in-exile, in its 7th session
held in march, 2009, passed a resolution to
constitute a parliamentary committee to look into
the state of Tibetan education in general and
particularly investigate into the reasons for the
unsatisfactory condition of the research and
specialization work. The committee was also to
come out with recommendations for the future. The
Hon'ble speakers of the Tibetan
Parliament-in-exile have already appointed the
committee and we are in the process of doing our work.

As a very important part of this onerous task, we
appeal to all those who feel concerned about the
condition of Tibetan education in general and
particularly the state of research and
specialization in our exiled community to kindly
respond to the 'Questionnaire' below so as to be
benefited by your valuable ideas. Those who, out
of necessity, opt to remain anonymous, may not respond to the personal resume.

Your response should reach us latest by 15th January 2010.
