Ten educators from across the US are in Cuba this week to learn about educational practice and philosophy on the island. Cuba claims following the Revolution its literacy rate was increased from 60% to 100% within two years by sending thousands of “literacy brigades” travelling across the country to rural areas. The program has been hosted by LACC and the University of New Mexico since 2016 and is led by Dr. Eric Dwyer of FIU's School of Education and Human Behavior.
LACC is pleased to announce the launch of a fully online Bachelors degree beginning this Fall'17. The degree joins LACC's nationally recognized undergraduate and graduate degrees, joint degrees, and certificates of specialization. All are designed to provide students from a broad range of disciplines —physical sciences, humanities, business and law, for example— the ability to center those interests in the LAC region.
