By teaching History of Cuba, educators aim to empower the patriotic, anti-imperialist and internationalist education among the youngest generations, who should assume a reflexive, patriotic and revolutionary way of living.

Through the teaching of this subject, the students can go into the struggles for the nation’s sovereignty, the customs of our people through ages and the lives of our patriots in depth, learning form the mistakes committed in the past.

Knowing History well is like having an arm at the service of culture. It helps to teach people to think and defend their ideas, aware of the complex problems of the world today.

For assuming such challenges, the nation needs teachers who know how to encourage a fruitful exchange of ideas among the pupils, and what the youngest ones learn goes beyond their own classrooms, but deep into society.

The Ministry of Education ranks the teaching of the History of Cuba as the number one subject for the sake of creating the new man. (Aramis González Cruz/ Radio Cadena Agramonte).
