Schools face book deficit

Almost all Grade One students in the Kingdom do not have any course books, the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association said yesterday.

Nearly two months into the school term, most schools lacked enough books to educate children, CITA president Rong Chhun said in a request sent yesterday to the Minster of Education to provide books for schools. Ministry of Education advisor Buoy Bunna said delivery has been complicated by the flooding.

Nearly 90,000 students are still unable to attend school along the Mekong River and Tonle Sap Lake because their schools are closed due to the flooding, according to the ministry.
