Education Minister Ena Elsa Velazquez recently confirmed that the school year will end on November 19 this year.
Authorities will respect the one-week school break scheduled for April and vacations will be from July 28 to August 27 for teachers and students, until classes resume on September 3.
“There will be no reduction in content nor will the fulfillment of the objectives of subjects, disciplines, grades and levels be affected,” the minister stressed.
Last week, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel celebrated the beginning of the new school year for junior-high school, pre-university, technical and professional education, pedagogical training, as well as youth and adult education.
In his official Twitter account, the president said the return to classrooms is an example of creative resistance in the face of adversity, after the control of the Covid-19 pandemic and the progress of the immunization process against that disease.
In its strategy to face the pandemic, more than 95 percent of the Cuban people between two and 18 years old received the complete vaccination schedule, to become a pioneer country in introducing this action.
