Mozambique falls 6 places in 2017 Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Index
First and 2nd grade students in Mozambique are studying without books. According to Education Minister Conceição Sortane, the delay is due to curriculum revision, but the books will be with the students in February.
“As far as the first grade book are concerned, it has to do with the revision of the curriculum. At this moment we have a first grade with three disciplines, namely Portuguese language, mathematics and physical education. The books will reach their users by mid-February. As for the 2nd grade books, the process was delayed a little at the time it was supposed to be produced but everything indicates that they will also be in the hands of the students in early February,” Sortane said.
The Minister promises that students will not be harmed by this delay. Teachers have been called upon to make arrangements and ensure that lessons go smoothly.
The 2017 academic year opened on January 20 and classes started on Monday. The Ministry of Education says that all schools in the country are open. In places where the classrooms have been flooded, tents are being used, and the sixty-day truce has allowed an undetermined number of students from conflict zones to return to school.Source: O País
