Education starts at home, everybody knows that. Children begin to socialize at home, they learn their first language at home, their first manners and begin to learn about their country’s culture.
Then, at school, they access a world of different and complex branches of knowledge, which is very likely (and natural) they won’t have access to at home. School plays a very important role which compliments and reinforces the education every citizen receives at home, if it plays this role properly.
In Cuba, the education system has many problems. First of all, there’s the exodus of teachers to better-paying jobs and, as a result, too many students in a classroom. There is also a shortage of educational materials and notable differences in students’ social status.
