Trebisht (Macedonian: Требиште) is a municipality in the Bulqizë District, Dibër County, eastern Albania.[1]

Demographics

Trebisht is inhabited solely by Orthodox Macedonians and Macedonian Muslims, who do not have official recognition from the Albanian government.[2]

Education

In 2009, a Macedonian language school opened in Trebisht, however these courses were met with fierce opposition from local authorities who called for the school to be shut down. Intervention from the Albanian Ministry of Education and from the Albanian Prime minister, Sali Berisha, ensured that the Macedonian language courses were able to continue education over 200 young Macedonians in their native Macedonian language.[3]
