Abstract
The article contains a description of the methods of the positive discrimination used by the Government of PRC in education towards the national minorities and an analysis of the problems that occur when implementing these methods. The author takes the Tibetan ethnic minorities' educational situation as the main example, because the lowest educational rates in PRC are shown in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. The author concludes that the positive discrimination shouldn't be regarded as the main instrument of the effacement of social inequalities, although it shouldn't be refused yet.
