He recalled that the United Nations organization calls on nations to dedicate around six percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to this sector and 15 to 20 percent of public spending.
In case of Cuba, the country has allocated 13 percent of GDP and 23 percent of public spending to education, he said.
Ortega stressed that as part of the desire to ensure quality education for everyone, the Caribbean nation is paying special attention to the use of technology with several projects and actions among them, the Young Computing Club.
This is a network of centers scattered throughout the country, including in the most distant places, to facilitate the access of children, adolescents and the whole family to new information and communication technologies.
This project was conceived and promoted several years ago, by the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, Ortega recalled.
