ANDALUCIA´S schools are to receive a €5.8 million cash injection to spend on text books, the education ministry has announced.

The grant is worth just under a third of the amount to be distributed nationally, €18.5 million, and the largest sum to be awarded to a jurisdiction.

Madrid received the next largest sum, €1.8 million, while Asturias was granted the smallest sum, €140,830.

While it is great news for Andalucia, the total amount set aside for the programme is some 40% below that delivered last year, €30.7 million.
