The Central Government has earmarked over 4 billion yuan ($592 million) to improve education in agricultural and pastoral areas in Tibet Autonomous Region.

According to the regional education department, since 2014, 1,034 compulsory education schools in 74 counties and districts have been allocated funding to support renovation work and equipment purchasing, among other projects.

Internet classes are accessed by 731 students in a primary school in Maizhokunggar County, where 42 teachers now also use electronic whiteboards during lessons.
