Jamaica recently welcomed 18 Cuban teachers as part of an effort to bolster the teaching of the sciences, Spanish and other subjects.

According to the JIS, they join 39 other teachers from Cuba who are currently serving at various schools – 20 at primary schools, 17 at the secondary level, and two at teacher-training institutions.

While speaking at an orientation exercise for  the teachers, Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Dr. Grace McLean stated that the educators will provide wonderful opportunities for Jamaican students to be “immersed in the Spanish language”.

She also expressed appreciation to the teachers stating Jamaica is grateful that they have taken up the offer to teach in the schools, and “it will not only provide us with the expertise that you are taking from your country, but it will also assist you in learning about the Jamaican culture”.

The teachers will serve at all levels of the school system, with five assigned to primary schools that have infant departments.

The educators are in Jamaica under an exchange programme through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Cuba.
