It was submitted by an anonymous translator on January 5, 2008.In 1987, there was a movement in favor of Tibetan language instruction for Tibetan officials and Tibetan students who were studying at Chinese schools, as well as Chinese officials in Tibet. Then, slowly the movement died. At present in Lhasa, the situation of Tibetan language is becoming more critical. Being the center of Tibet, it is very important to educate Tibetan children and youths in Tibetan language in Lhasa. Thus, what should we do but request the government to change policy? In reality, Tibetans do not want to study Tibetan.Several days ago, two meetings were held regarding Chinese officials who are going to work in the Tibetan countryside, and there was a proposal that these officials should learn Tibetan. However, there seems to be no proposal to educate these Tibetan youth who don’t read or write Tibetan. Nowadays, there are so many Tibetan youth who do not speak Tibetan. Please discuss!
