We invite you to participate in a remarkable research delegation to study the Cuban Public Education System and to experience a New Years Celebration in Havana!
Cuba is a relatively poor, developing country with 2% of the Latin American population, that somehow manages to produce 11% of its scientists!
In 2005, the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) released its Education For All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report, that specifically focuses on elevating the quality of education for all children, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged, by the year 2015. Cuba, along with the more developed countries of Canada, Finland and Korea, is singled out in the report as a high-performance country and role model to follow in terms of the quality of its educational system. Cuba is the only Latin American country, and the only relatively poor country, to achieve this status.
