Minister of Education Ena Elsa Velazquez told Prensa Latina that, with the resumption of the onsite school year, the three stages conceived since August, in conjuction with the Ministry of Public Health to vaccinate most students before going back to school, have been fulfilled.

According to Velazquez, the main challenges are the compliance with health measures and the determination of students’ individual emotional and cognitive differences in order to focus more attention on them.

“We did not suspend the course from from January to July, but reinforced it with televised activities. We have to consolidate those contents now and conclude the 2020-2021 school year in February,” she said.

She also stressed that they received reports from all schools across the country of the arrival of students with joy, calm and trust. “It is a true party,” she said.

Before the meeting with the children at Ciudad Escolar Libertad (Freedom School City), the Cuban president wrote on Twitter about the national rejoicing due to the resumption of the school year, the reopening of international flights and cultural, social and economic places.
