The intention of this paper is to evaluate educational system in Cuba under the leaders of the Cuban Revolution. The argument asserts that much improvement has been made to the Cuban education system since 1959, especially with respect to quantitative measures: the literacy rate, the student-teacher ratio, access to education, student enrollment, and the highest level of education attained. The qualitative measures of the Cuban educational system also show improvement: the quality of instruction and the democracy of education have improved. But there are areas in need of improvement: political content and academic/ intellectual freedom. Much of the outcome, both positive and negative, can be attributed to the main goals of the Cuban Revolution: increase in literacy, integration of formal education with employment needs, and to create a "new socialist man."
