Cuban prime minister congratulates teachers on “Educator’s Day

Havana, Dec 22 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero on Thursday sent a warm greeting to professors on Teachers' Day, an event that marks the end of the Literacy Campaign in 1961.

On his official Twitter profile, the head of Government congratulated those who ‘with deep dedication, patience, and love, exercise the art of teaching in our country.’

At the same time, the Higher Education Ministry (MES) mentioned on that social network the celebration of the trainers and creators of perseverance and dedication for self-improvement and creativity.

Earlier, President Miguel Diaz-Canel wrote on his webpage that the word teacher defines those who teach and guide and, in his opinion, National Hero Jose Marti ‘made it equal to the creator.’

The president acknowledged ‘those who fill other human beings with knowledge and instruction;’ he considered that in Cuba ‘they are loved as family and thanked them for their perseverance, dedication, self-improvement, and creativity.

Cuban Minister of Education Ena Elsa Velazquez expressed her infinite respect, gratitude and affection and accompanied her congratulations to Cuban teachers with admiration for the daily work done by each educator (…) from their individuality they work with a high sense of belonging and responsibility.

The day also recalls the proclamation of Cuba as a territory free of illiteracy by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, who at Revolution Square valued the work of teachers, popular literacy teachers and youths in that great battle.
