The literacy rate of people aged 14 to 45 has continued to rise in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, said a report released by the regional committee for educational supervision.

The report, released on July 29, said that by the end of 2007, 70 counties in this plateau region had met the goal set for a campaign designed to wipe out illiteracy among young people. The report said 95.6 percent of the young people were covered by the program, a rise of 5.6 percent from that of 2006.

And 95.24 percent of the young people in Tibet had learned to read and write by late 2007, a rise of 5.24 percent over 2006.

With Gerze, the last county to be included in the six-year compulsory education in 2007, all 74 counties (county-level cities or urban districts) in Tibet had attained the goal of making six-year compulsory education within reach of all school-age children.

The schooling rate of school-age children for primary schools was 98.2 percent last year, up 1.7 percent from the previous year.

A total of 63 counties had also hit the target of making nine-year compulsory education for all school-age children by late 2007.

And the rate of schooling at junior-middle schools was 90.79 percent last year, up 8.59 percent from a year ago.
