According to the Ministries of Education and Higher Education in Cuba, 1 million 840 thousand students in general education and 200 thousand in the universities are enrolled in classes.

Scenes like these images were repeated throughout the country.

One thought on “The First Week of School in Cuba

  • The start of classes means that thousands of Cuban university students now have internet access again.
    I thought it was odd that a few of my Facebook friends from Cuba dropped off the face of the Earth for awhile, then I realized they were on summer break.
    I guess it is some progress that there is beginning to be access to more of the internet, including social networking.
