Teaching activities in Cuba will continue on television until further notice, which is why it can already be officially said that next Monday, April 20, classes will not resume in schools on the island, as had been planned since March 24.

“As is evident, given the situation in the country, it is not possible to access educational institutions, because we have to continue complying with the planned isolation measures,” Minister of Education Ena Elsa Velázquez said this Friday.

The minister explained during the Mesa Redonda television program that, in keeping with the circumstances, a new stage of televised classes will begin, which coincides with the third and last teaching period of the school year.

Televised classes have been the means used for the last three weeks to maintain teaching activities at the primary, junior and senior high school levels, as well as in professional technical education and in the training of pedagogical personnel.

The Schools for Physical Education Teachers (EPEF) will join these classes, as well as those of artistic teaching, with the subjects of Solfeggio, Basic Piano, Instrument Practice, Physical Preparation, Voice and Diction, Sculpture, Painting, Ballet and Dance Technique.
