This doesn't mean that Castro is a good man or leader and it doesn't mean the people there are not suffering under a tyrant. Just to say that a bad leader and suffering peoples can be compassionate and well educated at times. Even a broken clock is right once a day.
Let us not feed Castro's propaganda with a lack of compassion and education on our parts.
Yes the education is first class. But, the medical facilities they work in are sadly lacking. Also in CUBA the children belong to the state and thus the education is free as long as you are a GOOD BOY OR GIRL. One of my grandson's GOD parents is a naturalized American citizen from CUBA. His family still has members in CUBA.
