Teacher coverage, study materials and the epidemiological situation are among the parameters evaluated by Ena Elsa Velázquez Cobiella, Minister of Education, for the start of the school year on September 2, in Ciego de Avila.
At the meeting Bárbara Miliáan Rodríguez, provincial director of the sector, said that the teacher coverage is at 91.9 percent, with primary and secondary levels most affected.
The leader added that 379 educational institutions will open, four more than the previous year, although the nursery Alfredo Gutiérrez Lugones of Ciego de Avila will not open, which limits the granting of places.
At the appointment it was announced that of the 29 lines of the material basis of study planned for that stage, 11 of them are guaranteed and sale of uniforms is fulfilled as planned.
Velázquez Cobiella stressed the need for care and maintenance repairs performed in schools and called to care and address the teaching cover in short and medium terms, which is only guaranteed with the addition to teaching careers.
At the preparatory meeting for the school year 2019-2020, the Education Minister urged to strengthen attention to students of third and fourth year of the teachers´ training courses and achieve greater linkage between the university and Vocational Technical Education.
