[Xmca-l] Re: Integral development of children

Thanks Rod. So, you agree that it was displaced then? Since when and where?
:) It seems quite vague where the science ends and ideology begins in
today's society and academia, where ideology expulses such
valuable, historical and scientific concepts from science...I suspect that
in a society where integral development of child and man is a rare
occurrence, it is too risky to teach it to new generations.

After below email, I looked into Cuban constitution for the term
"integral", I met it 5 or six times, all used with respect to human , child
and youth development.

Best wishes,
