Haiti - Education : Morose launch of the school year,
Monday, President Jovenel Moïse, accompanied by his wife Martine, Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant, Pierre Josué Agénor Cadet, the Minister of National Education, the President of the Lower House and many senior officials attended to the Lycée Pétion, at the launch ceremony of the academic year 2017-2018.

President Jovenel Moïse took the opportunity to renew his hope in the capacities of young people who must continue their apprenticeship under adequate conditions in order to acquire the knowledge needed to help build a modern nation where exclusion and social discrimination are banned "My presence at the Lycée Alexandre Pétion is to wish the entire educational community a happy and good academic year 2017-2018 [...] My administration is committed to the quality of education to accompany the efforts of parents. We need a good education system that is capable of making us believe in ourselves. My administration will implement comprehensive education reform at all levels; we must accept the divergence in unity [...] Moman an rive pou gen yon gwo chita pale sou edikasyon ak devlopman, youn pa mache san lòt. Prensip egalite demokratik se nan lekòl li jwen baz, koripsyon ak edikasyon pa mache ansanm. Jounen jodi a, nou bezwen yon bon sistèm edikatif ki ka fè nou kwè nan tèt nou. » He took the opportunity to distribute school kits to the children and give them some advice...

For his part, Minister Cadet praised the courage of the parents, who despite the economic difficulties make the maximum effort to send their children to school.

A launch of the school year that took place on a morose background , when several schools were deserted, parents caught in a severe economic crisis, unable to pay the 1,000 Gourdes required for the year, shoes, uniforms and other supplies for their children... Some schools have even postponed the back of schoopl by one week for lack of students... By contrast, a few crowded schools accommodated up to 80 pupils per class due to lack of space...

For the former Minister of Education Nesmy Manigat, Chairman of the Ethics Committee of the Global Partnership for Education, which brings together 65 developing countries and international organizations for education, stressing "Haiti today has an educational system like an education system of countries in a state of war..." denounces Nesmy Manigat, Minister of Education from 2014 to 2016. Recalling that beyond appearances, speeches and promises "this year we will have 400,000 children unable to return to school because of economic problems or because there are not enough places available," deploring that 80% of teachers do not have the basic skills to teach "We can no longer continue to recruit those who are not qualified", insisted Manigat who wants the depoliticization of the education sector.
