Liz Greilkreutz Norm Breilkreutr Proper revolutionary values important in Cuba Candid realism about education system By BUD JOHGENSEN HAVANA (CP) New Cuban secondary scbaols dress relating the students lo the means of production and Ihls Involves work in agricul- ture, which forms the basis for the economy. The (arm work is part o( a program designed to Instil a spirit of mass effort and so- cial responsibility into tho population. The work-study approach Lo education is continued into the universities and the students reaching this level have been carefully screened to ensure that they have proper "revo- lutionary" values. There Is a candid realism about the education system. The Cubans say they do not want lo train people who might become counter-revolu- tionaries nor do they want to Invest money and teachers' time in students who might he tempted to desert the country. A sign painted on a stone wall at the entrance to the Universily of Havana says: "Tho spirit of con-conformity, each time lhat il arises some- thing may be wrong." The work programs (or stu- dents are not designed to In- crease production, teachers say, tut to be part of Uie edu- cation process. SEE BOTH SIDES "You not only know the problems of the students, you know the difficulties of Iho said Armando Serra, dean of the faculty at a special secondary school In Havana. Serra Is 30 and graduated from Ine University of Ha- vana three years ago. Many Cubans In middle-level execu- tive positions are about Ser- ra's age. Serra's Vento for bright children. It Is part of an experimental program to accelerate learn- ing at the secondary Grades 7 to continu- ing through smiunc CULL FOR IflBHIT'S Grades 11 to 13. Canadian professors teoch- np at the university level in say graduates of the regular Cuban high schools are bright and eager but joorly prepared for univcr- sily.' A program bringing Cana- dian university teachers to Cuba currently is being oper- ated by Canadian University Services Overseas. Cuban university standards generally are on a level with hose In other countries. The failure rate in the first year is about 50 per cent but many repeat the year. Less (ban 20 per cent of those who start university fail to finish, uni- versity officials said. At (he Vento school the stu- dents have 25 hours of class lime a week, 16 hours of work and about 10 hours of regu- lated study lime. Half Ihe work lime is at a factory or farm and the other half is for chores around the school-- jobs ranging from cleaning to construction of visual aids for use at other schools. PLAN RURAL LOCATIONS The Vento school Is in a Ha- vana suburb but the regular secondary schools being built ire in rural settings. Julio Miranda, 31, director of the first "school in the country" built on Isle of Pines, said the national plan calls for all secondary schools to ba built In rural areas. About half Ihe capacity of Ml- randa'a school Is needed for children of families living on Isle of Pines and current plans are lo build four more. Students at Ihe Isle of Pines school have about 33 hours regulated class or sludy time and about 12 hours mainly farm week. The Isle of Pines school has about 475 students and 40 teachers. Most teachers are graduates of a teachers col- lege and have the equivalent of Grade 13 and first-year uni- versity in Canada. Thorc is a strict selection process (or students reaching university. Kvalualioiis arc made by teachers in primary to 6. Primary school starts at age five. Be- ginning in secondary school judfrments on individual stu- dents are made by represent- atives of student organiza- tions. TESTED ON POLITICS Mariano Seiplie, 47, a law- yer and director of Interna- tional relations ot Central University at Santa Clara in the interior of Cuba, described how Iho university admissions system works. In addition to entrance ex- aminations, there is a "moral, political and ideological" evalualion of each Universily applicant by a small commit- tee of faculty, members. Seig- lie declined (o say how many are rejected for these reasons but said the proportion Is "very small." Seiglie, said the moral iuflg- mcnt covers what Is consi- dered normal In Cuban soci- are not ac- cepted. The political and Ideo- logical evalualion Is to ensure that prospective graduates will be committed to the exist- ing political system. Thsre are no tuition fees and (here are scholarships for all full-time students. "Ho (Iho student) has only one Seigllo said. "Once he has received his de- gree he must work for Ihe people who have provided these things for him. Seiglie said the Castro gov- ernment developed faculties In practical disciplines such as engineering, medicine and agricultural sciences at Cen- t r a 1 University. Enrolment this year was about and (here were only 111 students In Iho humanities.
