Haiti - Education : Michaelle Jean wishes an
Michaelle Jean, the UNESCO special envoy for Haiti, will meet Tuesday, the members of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC), to present an education strategy for Haiti where only one in five children, had access to public school, before the earthquake of January 2010.

"It is imperative to implement the National Pact for Education, which was developed by Haitian authorities in the world of education and endorsed by the president of the republic" Michaelle Jean said in a statement. "This plan lays the foundation for building an education system that is accessible, universal and offers quality instruction" she says.

"It aims to provide free education for all children from 6 to 12 years of age by 2015, increase the proportion of students pursuing secondary and university level studies and provide literacy to 2.5 million Haitians [...] Haiti must rely on an educated workforce to implement the Action Plan for the rehabilitation and development of Haiti [...] The plan's goals for territorial, economic, social and institutional reconstruction presented by the Haitian government in March 2010 in New York will be realized only if its citizens have all the tools needed to tackle future challenges. In this regard, education is essential" has concluded the UNESCO special envoy.
