The average cost of each book is about $13.00.  When we started in 2006, it was about  $ 10.00.

After the meeting with Armando in February, Richard Adams developed a survey to get some feedback on the success of the textbooks provided in the villages.  Louise helped draw a sample to represent town and village schools that received books in a variety of locations throughout Sololá. A young man with school work experience, who was selected and paid by Richard, took the survey and spoke to teachers, students and administrators in several locations.  However, it became quickly apparent that the information was not very useful.  Due to current discussions related to the uncertain continuation of this project, the current survey was suspended.
