TDSB Primary School Lesson Plan For Pol Pot

TDSB Spokesman Ryan Bird On the Che Guevara lesson plan: “This was just for elementary students. There were certain elements of Che Guevara’s ‘darker past’ were not necessarily appropriate for this context, as we were truly focusing on the literacy rate in Cuba,”

So why were you teaching it at all? Isn't that a bit like teaching Hitler loved dogs and was a vegetarian?

Here's the Pol Pot Lesson for Cambodian kids.

Comment by Carlos Perera on the the lie of 100% Literacy In Cuba pushed by our academics:

"Cuba's much-vaunted nearly 100% literacy rate--a claim the Castro government started to make by the end of 1960--is as valid as its claim to offer First World-level health care free to all of its people. (Regarding this latter, I recommend the series on YouTube, "The Truth about Healthcare in Cuba," for a little reality orientation.)

My father, a great enthusiast of the Revolution in its early phases, was involved in the mass-literacy programs of 1960. The volunteer literacy teachers, some of them none too literate themselves, would be sent into a target area for a few weeks, then the area would be declared 100% literate. My father was dumbfounded by the claims, as he could see for himself that they weren't true; when he, with naive good faith, tried to bring the unreality of the claims to the officials running the program, he was met with the "Shut up, or else!" counterargument typical of dictatorships. (This was his first major disillusionment with the promises of the Revolution.)

I myself was able to test the Castro government's claim in the early 1980s, when I volunteered to teach English to recently arrived Mariel Boatlift refugees in the Central Florida area: the reality was that a large percentage of my students were not only illiterate in English (which was, after all, to be expected), they were also functionally illiterate in Spanish! With many of them, I found myself giving dual instruction in Spanish and English literacy."

A quick search on Google shows that Cuba wasn't exactly the basketcase that Fidelistas saw that it was before Fidel. A literacy rate around 70%, more doctors per capita than Canada. Batista was pretty horrible and extremes between the poor and the wealthy but not exactly Haiti either.
