—-Solwezi district has received 2,520 grade one local language text books for the newly introduced local languages curriculum.
District Education Board Secretary, Frederick Munkinyi, confirmed the receipt of the books to ZANIS in an interview in Solwezi today.
Mr Munkinyi said the district received the text books early this month for all the schools in the district.
He said distribution has since started and is on-going.
And Mr Munkinyi has disclosed that the district this week received text books for secondary schools though he could not disclose the quantity as the books were still being unpacked.
Mr Munkinyi said the books will go a long way in reducing the pupil book ratio which is relatively high.
