ARIAS BEATON, Guillermo. Educational Psychology and the educational system in Cuba. Psicol. esc. educ. [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.1, pp.155-164. ISSN 1413-8557.

In this work we present an analysis of the role of Educational Psychology and the organization of the Educational system in Cuba. We propose to show the evolution of the philosophical, psychological and pedagogical ideas from the XVIII century to this date. We argue that this field of study has been enriched through debates that require a practical application of the theories and of empirical research in the improvement of the contents in Education as a condition to promote the development supported by a social and cultural revolutionary project. We need to accomplish studies and critical formulations on the methodological, theoretical and empirical contents in Psychology. This will help us to build a system of Education that grant a quality necessary to promote the learning to all school children in their diversity. Psychology, together with Education has a very important role in the struggle against cultural colonialism, so it is important to promote scientific debates, in this area always concerning with the social and cultural commitment to the country.
