In recent statements to reporters, Education Minister Ena Elsa Velesquez Cobiella said that 12,000 schools will open on Monday with nearly 280,000 teachers highly qualified to provide high-quality education.

According to education authorities in the Cuban capital, the number of students in boarding schools was reduced from 22,800 to only 4,700 thanks to a decision to re-open high-school and pre-university centers in the city.

In eastern Santiago de Cuba, the number of students in boarding schools was also reduced in more than 8,000, a measure that will certainly contribute to a significant saving of oil, material and human resources.

Current economic difficulties have also led to the creation of the so-called mixed-centers in which students of different levels will coincide.
