No education is worth your freedom
Contrary to what the Castro regime, its apologists here in the U.S. and the world, and the blissfully ignorant people that believe everything they read say, there is no such thing as a free education in Cuba. All Cuban parents pay for the privilege of having their children learn to read and write by submitting them to intense indoctrination in communist propaganda and Castro worship throughout their primary, secondary, and high school education.
University students must pay for their higher education with unwavering and unquestionable dedication to the Castro regime. If they dare to criticize the regime publicly, step out of line, or exercise their freedom to speak their minds, they are immediately expelled from the university.
Such is the case of Reyner Aguero, a 22-year-old student at the University of Computer Sciences. Reyner made the mistake of granting an interview to an anti-Castro blog, Punt de Vista, and that ended up getting him expelled from the university.
Reyner Aguero expelled from the university for granting an interview to this blog
Reyner Aguero, a young 22-year-old student at the University of Computer Sciences has been expelled from the school in the last hours under the pretext of "using technology (internet) for non-educational purposes," according to a message I received from him.
Authorities at the university made this decision after the student granted an interview to this blog in which he gave his opinion regarding the situation in the country and the changes that should take place as soon as possible.
Aguero is denouncing that authorities have changed the passwords to his accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail.
Keep this particular story in mind the next time someone tells you that education in Cuba is free. It is not. It comes at the price of your freedom, and no education is worth your freedom.
