Paper school books to be thing of the past

by TPN/ Lusa, in News · 03-08-2017 14:09:00 · 0 Comments

Portugal passed a new law on Tuesday to progressively abandon paper school books and replace them with online material.

The law was proposed by the left-wing ‘Green’ party and was approved early inJuly by all parties except the right-wing CDS-PP.
There have long been complaints in Portugal about the weight that even very young children have to carry in their backpacks because of the dozens of books they have to take back and forth from home to school every day.
