In his speech for the occasion, Nesmy MANIGAT expressed his joy at being with his family in order to continue the fight for the cause of education. "I'm back home. This is an opportunity to tell you that the 12 measures are back in force" specifying that "he does not represent any particular political group within this Government, stressing" If there is a group that I represent, it is not other than the parents of around 4 million school children in the system. [...]"
It reassures parents through initiatives that will be taken to reduce the impact of school costs on their scholarships. "This will be done through the gradual resumption of uniform distribution, subsidy and textbook endowment programs [...] Dialogue with directors of public and non-public schools will become permanent again. It will be the same with technical and financial partners, and teachers."
"The 12 measures are back", underlined Manigat who had officially presented, on August 8, 2014 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-11781-haiti-education-exam-results-disappointing-the-minister-manigat-announced-a-package-of-measures.html the provisions aimed at the overhaul of the Haitian education system. These provisions come back with all the advantages offered to educational agents, but also with all the requirements that aim to put more quality in Haitian education.
Minister Manigat intends to focus his initiatives in three priority action areas:
- the Great South devastated by the earthquake of August 14, which requires the mobilization of more sustained efforts and for which the State, Haitian civil society and the international community must work in perfect synergy;
- lawless areas plagued by organized crime preventing children from going to school. This is in violation of their right to education at all times. "The school must be able to function everywhere and in all circumstances" Lekòl pa ka tann ", according to him, so as not to continue to widen the gap between the citizens of the same country.
- the border area which requires the installation of more school infrastructure in order to retain Haitian children who are forced to go, not always in peace, to neighboring territory to have access to basic school services.
In this roadmap, special mention will be given to education for sustainable development and citizenship.
