South China's Guangdong province will send 390 teachers to the northwestern Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and the southwestern Tibet autonomous region to support their education sectors.

 

The teachers will begin working in local middle and primary schools in spring and stay there for one and a half years.

 

The efforts are part of the government program to meet the demand for qualified teachers in the regions.

 

Guangdong authorities previously sent 290 teachers to the regions in the first phase of the program.
