The Cuban Minister of Education, Dr. Ena Elsa Velazquez Cobiella called in Holguin to eliminate the deficiencies of schools that are not yet certified by Public Health to open its doors this September 3, with the start of the new school year 2018-2019.

In the province of Holguin some 53 educational centers were identified with difficulties, mainly associated with constructive problems, which have gradually been solved, however it is foreseen that eight schools will remain closed. This situation leads to relocation of the students registered in other places and family homes, so authorities in the territory should increase efforts to not affect the educational process carry out in these centers.

In meeting to assess the assurances of the corresponding school period, Velazquez Cobiella noted the teachers coverage of 93, 6 percent in the territory and pointed out that despite the advances in pedagogical training, there’s still the need of one thousand 84 teachers, whose immediate solution lies on the implementation of alternatives.
 
In this sense, she called for raising the efficiency in pedagogical schools to gain in quality and to direct the strategies in the attentionand the stimulation of  the teaching staff in order to reduce the exodus.

The upcoming school year forecast an enrollment of 163 thousand 693 students in all education levels, 338 more than in the previous stage, with an increase in the number of boarding students, while working in the distribution of the resources and school materials in order to guarantee a good start.
