On the occasion of #TeachersDay2022, we would like to remember & highlight some instances of cruel suffering that #Tibetan teachers have been enduring at the hands of #CCP in #Tibet. #CCP ordered the closure of Sengdruk Taktse school in Darlak in eastern #Tibet where #RinchenKyi was the longest-serving #teacher.
