Managua, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Minister of Education Ana Elsa Velazquez kicked off an official visit to Managua on Sunday, after paying tribute to the Nicaraguan hero Carlos Fonseca Amador on his 83rd birthday.
At the mausoleum built in memory of Fonseca Amador, also known as the ‘Father of the Sandinista Revolution’, Velazquez laid a wreath on behalf of the Government and the people of Cuba.
The Cuban minister and the delegation accompanying her arrived in Managua to share experiences on educational systems and methods, as it is a sector in which the two countries are in the region’s vanguard.
In that regard, the advisor to President Daniel Ortega for educational affairs, Salvador Venegas, noted the importance of these kinds of meetings to learn about the pedagogical achievements that need to be implemented.
He pointed out that Cuba is a paradigm in education for Latin America and it is a country from which there is a lot to learn to continue to make progress to improve the educational system, as instructed by Nicaragua’s leadership.
