+ - South African schools to go textbook free->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "South African education authoraties are about to embark on an ambitious plan to take their schools textbook free, using the familiar refrain of one-tablet-per-child to do so. The education minister in Gauteng (the province which covers Johannesburg and Pretoria) has announced a plan to model new schools in the area on Sunward Park, a government school which went all-digital at the start of 2012. Other schools in the state will then follow, along with a plan to extend the project nationally. There's not much in the way of detail yet in terms of costings, but the country recently came last in a WEF survey of school performance (in a particularly poorly researched survey)."
