Free textbooks to be delivered

The Ministry of Education has plans to distribute 11 million free textbooks during the new school year that starts on 22 August 2016. The textbooks will be for all grade levels in public schools. Nilda Taveras, Director General of Education Media at the Ministry of Education, has offered assurances that the books will be sent directly to the schools rather than via the regional or local education districts.

The distribution will start with a pilot plan in 116 schools in Jarabacoa and Sabana Grande de Boya.
