Haiti - Education : National learning recovery program for students, more details
This program launched by Minister Manigat on May 15, 2023 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-39522-haiti-flash-state-exams-support-program-for-9th-af-and-secondary-students.html began in the Departmental Directorates, particularly in the West Department where several learning centers opened the weekend of May 26 and 27 for students in the 9th year of fundamental and secondary 4.
The learning compensation program has three components :
The first component concerns the recovery of learning losses. This part concerns pupils in the 7th, 8th and 9th fundamental years, and pupils in classes from secondary 1 to secondary 4. Miguel Fleurijean indicates that there are approximately 850 trainee teachers who have graduated from the CFEF, Faculty of Applied Linguistics, IERAH/ISERSS, ENARTS, normal schools, UPRs that work with students, throughout the territory, from Monday to Friday.
The second concerns the acceleration of learning to help students prepare for this year's official exams such as the 9th and the baccalaureate. This part will take place on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. It is the teachers who have already proven themselves in the system who will work with the students who will write the state exams; 9th years and secondary 4 students.
The third part concerns the consolidation of learning. For this part the Director Miguel Fleurijean explains that it is a work that is done with the idea of appreciating the kind of skills that the students have after having finished following these courses; skills for life, skills to pass exams and pursue university studies. Overall, the learning compensation program mobilizes 2,500 teachers, including trainee teachers.
In order to reach 300,000 candidates from the 9th year of the fundamental and the secondary 4 who will take part in the State exams, the ministry has combined a series of strategies and tools that can help it reach all these students, public students schools such as private school students.
One of the strategies is to provide these courses in learning recovery centers. There are 37 centers of this type that have opened their doors in the West department. Others are opening their doors in other departments.
Another strategy consists in broadcasting these courses on the Educational Radio of the Ministry (102.1 FM) and on the radios of Port-au-Prince and in the provincial towns.
The Ministry must distribute these courses on digital keys and digital cards to students in public and private schools so that a student or a teacher can consult them on a computer, telephone or digital tablet.
Kendy Nicolas specifies that all these educational resources are in accordance with the Ministry's official curriculum.
As part of the courses taking place on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, for this first weekend, 19,000 students from the 9th year of fundamental and secondary 4 attended the 36 centers in the West department.
Note that this program has received financial support from several international institutions such as Education Cannot Wait, UNICEF and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
