Population and Society in Contemporary Tibet

The development of knowledge—which also includes social sciences, humanities, sciences, and technology—is found to be associated with the development of human societies. Several different forms of education are utilized so that knowledge may be disseminated and passed on to future generations. Education—a product of cultural, economic, and social development—also plays an integral role in the major indicators of social development. The rapid economic development of industrialized countries since the 1960s is often attributed to how the entire society is enabled with access to basic education. As such, modernization may be perceived to be achieved through modern education. This chapter concentrates mainly on the Tibet Autonomous Region's education through looking into education before 1952, analyzing school system development, and addressing various issues for educational development.

Keywords:   knowledge, education, human societies, modernization, school system, educational development
