Kingston, September 3 (RHC/JIS) — Twenty Cuban teachers will be taking up positions in Jamaican primary, secondary and junior high schools across the island in the new academic year, the media in that Caribbean nation has reported.
The teachers will be providing instruction in Spanish, physics, mathematics, chemistry, and physical education and are expected to stay in Jamaica for three years. They will serve in the six education regions spanning the island’s 14 parishes.
In welcoming the teachers, Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator Ruel Reid, pointed to the excellence of the Cuba's education system. Your literacy rates are among the highest in the world, noted the minister, adding that Jamaica is grateful for the long and cordial relationship it has maintained with Cuba and for Cuba's contribution to Jamaica’s social development.
Cuban teachers have been serving in Jamaica since both countries signed a bilateral agreement in 1997.
