“We note that there is a great lack of schoolbooks among secondary pupils, due to their weak purchasing power. The books currently in circulation will remain in use, but for purposes of ‘complementary consultation.’” Mozambique’s Education Minister has announced that with the start of the 2017 academic year, its school system will adopt a single book for each subject taught in the country’s secondary schools.

Also: get to know the internationally renowned Mozambican writer Mia Couto, whose books The Blind Fisherman and The Tuner of Silences were recently translated into English.
