Celebrates Its 5th Year Cuban's Generalist Teachers Program
More than 1,870 "generalist teachers" have been trained at the José de la Luz y Caballero School during its five years of existence.

The school is located in Güira de Melena neighborhood of Havana, where the first students who joined the Generalist Teachers Program were dubbed by Fidel Castro as "the valiant ones."

In Cuba, comprehensive Generalist Teachers Program emerged to solve a teacher shortage problem at the high school level.

There were initially a hundred eleventh grade students who would be trained to become teachers and work in classrooms with no more than 15 students. To do so, the trainees would learn to use teaching aids, such as TVs, VCRs and computers.
