KUALA LUMPUR: Come the new school year, parents will not have to worry about buying textbooks for their children.
All schools nationwide should receive full delivery of books under the Textbook Loan Scheme before the end of the year.
An Education Ministry official said letters on delivery dates had already been sent out to all schools.
“Urban schools will receive the books before the start of the school holidays (Nov 17) while rural schools will receive them before December,” the official said when contacted yesterday.
It has been announced under the 2008 Budget that the scheme will be extended to all students, irrespective of family income and with no restrictions on the number of eligible children.
The scheme will benefit 5.7 million students compared with 4.5 million now.
