Portugal - 400,000 pupils get free school book vouchers

More than 400,000 Portuguese school pupils have received vouchers via a digital platform called MEGA to buy their text books a week before the 2018/2019 school year is due to begin.

The Portuguese education ministry now provides free text books to all 500,000 pupils enrolled in grades 1 to 6 who study at state schools.

The education ministry said that around 4,000 schools now have the 2.5 million vouchers for parents and guardians to pick up the books they need for this school year.
