Cuban President describes teaching history as essential in Cuba

Havana, Feb 23 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Tuesday described as essential the teaching and learning of history in the new generations for the ideological battle waged by the country. During a meeting with professors of the Enrique Jose Varona University of Pedagogical Sciences, the president stressed the importance of this social science for the defense and commitment of the revolutionary process. ‘If we do not succeed in making youngsters learn history, feel it, master it, know how to find answers to the problems we are experiencing, we will not succeed in defending the country or the Revolution,’ he said.
Cuba will live very complex years in terms of ideological battle, the head of State assured. Regarding the encounter, the president learned that the professors of the university are preparing a television program to deal in depth with controversial issues and manipulated facts of the Cuban reality.
