Haiti - Education : The traditional classroom is no longer the only way to learn
Friday January 7, 2022, Nesmy Manigat, the Minister of National Education, who was accompanied by two members of his cabinet, Inspector General Louis Fritz Dorminvil, the Coordinator of the Education and Quality Pole, Joseph Job Maurice and the Departmental Director of Education of the West, Étienne France Louisseul, had fruitful exchanges with more than forty high school students and delegates of the central committees representing twenty high schools of the municipalities of Port-au-Prince, Delmas, Pétion-ville, Cité-Soleil, Croix-des-Bouquets, Tabarre and Carrefour.

The Minister wanted by this exercise of free speech, to hear the high school students expose what they were experiencing in real life in the classrooms and to listen to their grievances.

The students presented their grievances, supported by facts to the Minister, in particular on the safety and health environment of the schools, the obstacles to the development of the renovated Secondary, the teaching conditions, the quality and availability of textbooks, school canteens, the state of infrastructure, mental health or even the nonchalance displayed in the administration of certain schools.

Minister Manigat wanted to be reassuring while stressing that the scale of these challenges calls for a great mobilization of the State which will have to extend over several years and identify some possible solutions.

To counter certain situations which traditionally hamper learning in schools (insecurity, pandemic, climatic hazards, natural disasters, political social troubles, etc...), Manigat announced the availability shortly of programs dedicated to personal learning via the digital platform (Lycée 2.0) which will be accessible "online" or "offline". This platform will exclusively offer high school students and those in official exam classes the opportunity to continue learning independently anytime, anywhere.

The Minister is convinced that "the traditional classroom is no longer the only means of transmitting knowledge". He stressed that the availability of digital educational resources should not be seen as a response to the dysfunction of schools but that it is the direction to be taken, as it allows more efficient learning and better adapted to the context of the school evolution of the world.

Regarding face-to-face, a tablet, owned by the Ministry, with a learning program with resources related to secondary disciplines, will be loaned to secondary 4 students. There will also be one for teachers. This program will be implemented in high schools in difficult situations in the metropolitan region of Port-au-Prince.

A pilot experiment, with the digital tablet, also called by the Minister "Single Book", will start on the occasion of the resumption of school activities at the national high school of La Saline.
