The government of Somalia is implementing a new curriculum for primary and secondary schools for the first time since the civil war broke out in 1991.

In the past, schools had to accept whatever material that came handy to them.

The Ministry of Education said up to 2 million textbooks printed in Somalia, have been issued to pupils in most parts of the country since August and their schools have synchronised academic terms.

The new books cover English, Arabic, Somali, Mathematics, Islamic studies, Science, Physical education, Technology, and Social studies.

The al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab insurgency group regularly launches deadly bomb attacks in Somalia to impose its own strict version of Islamic law.

The government however, hopes the new textbooks will help counter their message.
