free textbooks

One thing about good in education in Malaysia is each student will entitle to loan textbooks from school if one of the parents is Malaysian. Some countries’ schools still request their student to buy textbooks even though they are the citizens of the county. Hey, school textbooks not cheap at all. If I will to buy my elder girl’s textbooks, I think it easily cost me above RM300 each. Imagine, if you have 3 -4 kids who is schooling, you will be spending like RM900 – 1200 every years, not including exercise books though. Bookshops who sell textbooks sure can early a lot of us already. These amounts not even enough to get deduction from tax return. Lower income family how to afford to pay for this amount? So you should appreciate that you live in Malaysia!
