This painting shows school children in Havana at their lunch break. They are wearing the official government insignia on their shirts and blouses.

Following the 1959 revolution, the Castro government nationalized and banned private-owned institutions, and created a system operated entirely by the Communist government. Education expenditures continue to receive high priority. Nevertheless, the economic upheaval after 1991, known as the "Special Period," strained Cuba's long-standing efforts to ensure access to quality educational services. Strong ideological content is present. The constitution states that educational and cultural policy is based on Marxist ideology.
