Cuba Education Tours is offering a Teachers Introduction to Cuba Tour from March 15 to 22, 2009. The program is limited in size and always fills to capacity several months in advance. It has become an annual Spring Break learning sojourn for North American educators and hundreds of teachers have joined over the years. Members of the delegation are held in high regard by the Cubans, reflecting Cuba’s 50 years of national priority to free quality education and the teachers who make it happen.
