Laterthe Abel Santamaria ideological academy was created in the former prison in the Isle of Pines where a young group was serving prison terms after the attack against the Moncada Military Garrison in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba.

At the end of the 1950´s the July 26th Movement in the Sierra Maestra Mountains continued the same guidelines aimed at maintaining continued political-ideological preparation.

In December 2nd, 1960, the Ñino Lopez National School of the Cuban Communist Party was created including the Revolutionary National System of Education. Later the Revolutionary Basic Education Schools with a massive character was founded.
