Chinese authorities dispatched large numbers of security personnel to Tibetan areas following large-scale student protests over education policies this week.Local sources said thousands of Tibetan high school and college students took part in the demonstrations on Monday and Tuesday in Tsolho and Rebkong amid fears they will be forced to adopt a Chinese-language-only curriculum.A monk at the Longwu temple who took part in the demonstrations said there were dozens of army vehicles and personnel still on the streets Wednesday. The protest began on Tuesday, sparked by students from the Tongren County No.1 Middle School. They shouted slogans such as “Racial equality! Free education!” as they marched. Authorities on Wednesday moved to calm tensions as the protests spread. A local governor addressed students and assured them that the Tibetan language would remain in the school curriculum even though an official document said the Chinese language would be the main language of instruction. Estimates of protest size given by Tibetan sources ranged from as low as 1,000 to as high as 5,000-8,000.
