        By the end of the s, rural and urban uprisings linked to the Cuban Revolution had spilled over from Central America into the bigger countries of South America. Revolutionary groups whose leaders had trained in Havana were operating in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, and Argentina. Most of the rural and urban guerrillas may not have traveled to Cuba. In addition to the renewal of Cuba’s infrastructure, there were strong ideological reasons for education reform. In pre-Revolutionary Cuba, there was a dichotomy between urban citizens and rural citizens (who were often agricultural workers). The Cuban Revolution was driven by the need for equality, particularly among these classes.

      The economy of Cuba is a largely planned economy dominated by state-run government of Cuba owns and operates most industries and most of the labor force is employed by the state. Following the fall of the Soviet Union in , the ruling Communist Party of Cuba encouraged the formation of worker co-operatives and r, greater private property and free . The Urban Reform Law and The Agrarian Law contributed to the reduction of poverty almost immediately in the wake of the Revolution. Castro also proved very adept at casting the US in the role of the Cuban enemy.

        Before the final anti-private property reforms were carried out, there would first occur the Bay of Pigs, the threat of U.S. invasion, the Cuban-Soviet alliance, the missile crisis, the almost complete isolation of Cuba in the hemisphere, the death of Che Guevara in Bolivia, the solitary undertaking of Cuban socialism, and the conviction that. Now, thanks to a new agrarian reform law, anyone in Cuba willing to farm will be given land to do so. Although the so-called special period—the economic crisis years of the s and early s—is over, improving agricultural production remains a key priority in the round of economic reforms .
