Doctors and nurses are not the only kind of slaves that Castro, Inc. rents out to other nations. This news story brings to light another slaving scheme that normally doesn’t attract attention.
Sending slave teachers to the Bahamas while Cuba is facing a severe shortage of teachers is bad enough, and worthy of censure, but sending teachers to an English-speaking country who can’t really teach in English is even worse. This glaring bit of chicanery on the part of Castro, Inc. proves that the dictatorship is not only morally bankrupt, but that it’s much-praised educational system is really awful.
Complaints from locals who are served by Castro, Inc.’s slaves are frequent. It happens with slave doctors, and, as this story proves, also happens with teachers. They are usually deficient in various ways, and unqualified.
Yet, countries like the Bahamas, or Portugal, or Italy, keep renting Castro, Inc.’s slaves, and idiots and miscreants around the world clamor for a Nobel Prize to be awarded to the oligarchs who own these slaves and rent them out.
In this case, as one might expect, the government of Bahamas strongly denies that it hired unqualified Cuban teaching slaves, but there is no denying the fact that the Bahamian Teacher’s Union is simply voicing complaints received from the schools in which these Cuban slaves teach.

The Government of Bahamas has dismissed claims by the Bahamas Union of Teachers (BUT) that a group of Cuban teachers that it has employed cannot speak English.
“It was unfortunate that the BUT was unable to send a representative for the interview pane. The teachers recruited are the result of a memorandum of understanding signed by the ministry and the Republic of Cuba which has over the last 20 years, allowed the ministry to meet deficits in specialized areas.
“The panel was satisfied that the teachers are highly qualified and have competency in English,” the Ministry of Education said in a statement.
BUT president, Belinda Wilson, who called for an investigation into the allegations that the teachers cannot speak English, told the Tribune newspaper on Thursday that teachers in Abaco, Grand Bahama and New Providence have been complaining about language barriers.
“Within the last few days. I would’ve received concerns from several schools where some of the new Cuban teachers that have just arrived within the last few weeks, there seems to be a language barrier and some of them are having difficulty speaking the English language.”
She said that some of the students have also raised the issue and while the new teachers are desperately needed, the union would not sit idly by if the situation is not addressed.
“If the children are unable to understand what they’re saying, or they’re unable to understand what the children and teachers are saying, then its counter-productive so, as I said earlier, we are grateful for our colleagues from Cuba, but once a complaint comes to the union or a concern, we must follow up,” she added.
