Math and English text books are to be provided free of cost to students at the Montserrat Secondary School this year.
According to ZJB Radio News, Minister of Education Delmaude Ryan announced the offer last week.
She also said the intent is to switch to ebooks for all text books used in the CSEC programme. However, this is a challenge as publishers are unwilling to reduce the costs of the books even in a digital format.
Minister Ryan expects that a decision on the progress will be made later this year at theÂ OECS Council of Ministers of Education.
