A challenge to the acquisition of reading books for preschool, first, second and third grade students faces the Ministry of Education (Meduca). 

It is a public act for $1.6 million dollars the ministry posted on Panama Compra in September 2016. It called for the purchase of 8,600 books. 

However, one of the companies that participated in this tender presented a challenge that must be resolved. 

Minister of Education Marcela Paredes de Vasquez explained that these types of situations occur regularly in these public events, because companies that are not favored by the evaluation committee present such actions. 

However, Paredes de Vasquez clarified that the evaluation committee is an autonomous body appointed for this purpose, regularly made up of professionals from the branches in which the tenders are held. 

The minister added that the delay should not impact the classroom experience for students, and urged educators to make the necessary adjustments.
