Haiti - Education : Towards a technical baccalaureate (ONAPE)
Tuesday, June 21, 2022, the Board of the National Office for Partnership in Education (ONAPE) after a long period of hibernation, met. It's Nesmy Manigat, Minister of National Education also acting as Chairman of the Council assisted by Dr Hervé Boursiquot, Director General of ONAPE and Professor Auguste D'Meza, member of his cabinet who chaired this Council.

During this meeting which inaugurated the work of this Council, the Minister Manigat considered it useful to detail certain decisions, taken recently, in order to activate the educational reform in progress. In this case, he focused on the pilot phase of the technical baccalaureate which will be initiated at the start of the next school year (September 2022), on the linguistic transition that the country is experiencing and which requires readjustments in the content taught and in the way of teaching, and on the single book which will be available, also at the start of the 2022-2023 school year, for students in 1st and 2nd years of the fundamental school.

About the technical baccalaureate, Laurent Saint-Cyr, of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Haiti (CCIH), issued favorable opinions. He believes that this could further anchor the school in the reality of the country while correlating teaching-learning and the needs of the national labor market, in addition to the regional market. Opinions shared in particular by the trade unionist Yvel Admit of the National League of Haitian Teachers (LINEH), Caroline Hudicourt of the Consortium of Organizations of the Private Sector of Education (COSPE) and Sherly Jean-Charles, representative of the Ministry of Economy and finances.

On this point, the Director General of ONAPE, Dr. Hervé Boursiquot, and the coordinator of the National Commission for the Development of Acquired Professional Experience (CNDVAEP), Charles Levelt Joseph, highlighted the need to work to the valorization of trades given that the country has a great need of it to operate companies, creators of goods and services for which they must mobilize know-how that they are obliged to import, most often.

Concerning the "single book", such as Christon St-Fort of the Federation of Protestant Schools of Haiti (FEPH) or Célita Févry of the Haitian Center for Social Action for the Advancement of the Family (CHASAF), other Board members expressed their appreciation. According to them, the "single book" will be useful in providing learners with content that conforms to the curricula, which is more understandable in their mother tongue (Creole). Preventing parents from incurring unnecessary expenses in the acquisition of several textbooks that are of no interest for learning at the level of the first cycle of fundamental school.
