We should count with the necessary professors, which have the adequate formation, said Velasquez during a conference in the first day of Congress University 2010, attended by delegates of 60 countries.
After she stressed the success in more than 50 years of Revolution, the official said teachers formation had been always at the center of the Cuban educational policy and in correspondence with the changed social conditions and the needs of society.
Before some of the 12 accredited Ministers to the Forum, Velasquez said that in order to increase the quality clear demands are required, consensus and pacts between the different social sectors and a high commitment of the people involved.
She also announced her agenda will resume next September the formation of primary professors with study plans of four years, although she did not talk about the foreseen registrations.
