In old Tibet, there were no schools in modern sense. In those days, the attendance rate of school-age children was less than 2 percent and the illiteracy rate was as high as 95 percent.

From the 1950s to the 1980s, the state organized scientists to conduct scientific surveys of the Tibet Plateau. In the period from 1980 to 1986, the Chinese Academy of Sciences conducted comprehensive and specific surveys of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the Tibet Plateau in particular, concerning its geological structure, evolution and main deposits of mineral ores. These surveys resulted in lifting the veil on some of the mysteries of the plateau, the establishment of a theory on the formation and evolution of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and revelation of the enormous potential and prospects for development of natural resources. Such a theoretical system is in the forefront in the world.
