Haiti - Education : Single Book Workshop
The work continued yesterday afternoon at the Royal Oasis hotel between specialists, staff of the Ministry and representatives of publishing houses on the singular problems of the Single Book, for the first four years of the fundamental, in 3 groups of reflection on that question. The central question for the working group yesterday Thursday was: "what approach should we take to design the single book ?". Many ideas emerged; the discussions were interesting; many proposals have been made to move the ministry forward on the issue.

The book will be used in all schools in Haiti, according to the decision of Minister Nesmy Manigat, who has already begun to reflect on this issue since 2015 during his first stint at the head of the ministry.

For Minister Manigat, the Single Book is an initiative that will allow more social justice, access and equity... "It's a chance for all children" to develop their skills and knowledge and to succeed in life. The Minister has constantly denounced the waste of money when a child in the first year of basic education is given 17 books to carry in his school bag. The Minister went on to say that this decision aims to give all children, without distinction, the same chance to develop their skills and knowledge and achieve their best career. According to the MENFP, the single book will contain everything a child needs to know; what he needs to know about reading, math, science, etc...

The objective is to allow the ministry to better direct the final phase of this file, and to hear the first actors involved in the single book file such as parents, educators and book-producing companies. This activity is linked to education sector reforms, particularly in terms of curriculum reform. According to the method of supervision of the workshop, the participants had to comment on this file and make valid proposals that would allow the ministry to draft a specification on the Single Book.

Gérard Marie Tardieu, representative of Copivit editions; Peter Frisch, representing Editions Henri Deschamps; Mrs. Frank Paul, representative of the Canapé edition; Charles Tardieu, representative of Zemès publishing and Jocelyne Trouillot, representative of Caribbean university publishing, are among those who shared with the public their experiences on the Single Book dossier.

The activities continue this Friday, May 27.
