Kids are told that Che “is called a ‘revolutionary’ because he wanted to change the way people…viewed the world.”
If by “the way they viewed the world” you meant, “from the fatal side of a firing squad,” then I guess that’s kosher.
Kids learn that Che’s particular passion was literacy, making him sound like your average White House First Lady.
Executing thousands of POWs seems like a weird way to teach them to read. Unlike the folks at the Toronto District School Board, though, I’m not up on the latest pedagogy.
We’re also helpfully informed that today, “Cuba enjoys a literacy rate of over 99.8% (that’s almost 100%…)” (!)
That literacy rate is another lie. Plus there’s no word on what reading materials are provided to all the homosexuals Castro’s put behind bars.
