      Cuban Teaching Method a Huge Success in Argentina

      Buenos Aires, February 2 (RHC)-- At least 1500 people in more than ten
      Argentinean provinces have joined the teaching method ¨Yo si puedo¨ (Yes I
      Can) created and donated by Cuba to fight illiteracy in Latin America.

      Improvements achieved with the method were recently highlighted by the
      Buenos Aires daily El Clarin in a story about one of the 240 centers in the
      country where the teaching program is being used.

      Several social organizations in Argentina including NGOs, the Universidad
      Popular de Madres de la Plaza de Mayo, the Servicio Paz y Justicia and other
      groups are using the popular Cuban method, which teaches basic literacy
      skills.

      The teaching method is currently being implemented in Buenos Aires, Jujuy,
      Chaco, Corrientes, Santa Fe, Río Negro, Neuquén, Córdoba y Mendoza -- and
      will soon begin in Salta, Tucumán, Santiago del Estero and Misiones.

      El Clarin reported that according to the latest census, 2.6 percent of
      Argentineans over the age of ten are illiterate. The newspaper quoted
      statements by an expert, saying that 67 percent of those over 15 in
      Argentina left school before finishing and many are currently finding it
      difficult to get a job.
