U.S. Blockade Conditions Cuban Educational Work

50 years conditions the educational work in Cuba, the director of the Central Institute of Educational Sciences, Lisardo Garcia, stated today.

Such aggressive policy impacts on the general management of teaching, limiting its possibilities, Garcia said at a news conference about the damages caused to the Cuban educational system from March 2012 to April this year.

It seems that there is no blockade in education because schools open every day, the academician stated after saying that Cuban children will have access to education although such Washington policy exists.

Only for the payment of freights in removals from distant markets of nearly 400 containers in 2012, the country had to pay more than $800,000 USD additional compared with the cost of having purchased these products in the southern region of the United States.

If such restrictions do not exist due to freight overpay, the country would have hired 1,723 of 6,000 modules needed for teaching natural sciences in elementary education, Garcia said.

Our objective is to decrease the effects of the blockade whatever the possibilities, the director of the Institute dependent on the Ministry of Education said.
