Mongolian school children to lease school textbooks

At a meeting of the Mongolian Cabinet, Yo.Baatarbileg, Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Sports presented a plan for leasing school textbooks to students. The minister’s idea is to implement projects and programmes in cooperation with international organisations which include launching a leasing service for school textbooks.

The Mongolian government  has decided to fund the printing of school textbooks for elementary students by 100 percent and for higher grades by 40 percent in 2019.

As far as the 2018-2019 academic year is concerned: 73 percent of all students – currently in excess of half-a-million are using textbooks from the school library for free.
