Haiti - Politic : Political favoritism in education, in the Southeast
The Federation of Educators of South East (FESE) denounces a series of arbitrary and illegal transfers of teachers, and principals who are being made ​​in the education system of South-East by Marc Charles Elder the departmental Director of Education.

At a press conference last Friday, Professor Serge Coq, President of the FESE has described of policy these transfers and requires the dismissal of Marc Elder Charles, the Departmental Director of Education of South-East, within a period not exceeding one week... "Since the arrival of Marc Elder Charles at the head of education in the region, he only take decisions illegal and arbitrary, in order to satisfy the politicians" lamented the President of the FESE. Coq, strongly criticizes the behavior of the Departmental Director, who heads the institution under the dictation of Parliamentarians of the region, including the member for the third constituency of Cayes Jacmel, Charles Kénol. Despite the various meetings of members of the Federation with the Director Elder, asking him to regain self-control, the transfer and dismissals of political orders continue, especially in the towns of Jacmel, Cayes-Jacmel, Cotes de Fer and others. Even Yves Gilbert, Deputy Secretary of the FESE was a victim of this wave of transfers affirmed Serge Coq.

For her part, Ms. Gabrielle Valescot, Vice-President of the FESE, dissatisfied with this decision, ask teachers and principals who have received their letter of transfer to remain at their posts, while waiting for a clear explanation is given by the Minister of National Education. She strongly condemns the transfer of Yves Gilbert, Deputy Secretary of the FESE and Director of the National School Etzer David of Cap Rouge [communal section of the town of Cayes-Jacmel], to be replaced by a teacher who is also the uncle of the Departmental Director and of Deputy Charles Kénol. While this substitute teacher, has no career in the educational system and is not appointed by the Ministry of Education.

Yves Gilbert, who received his letter of transfer for Coronelle, a city of the great neighborhood of Marbial said not being able to go in Coronelle because of the economic difficulties he faces. Originally from the town of Bainet, Yves Gilbert was transferred in 2009 to the National School Etzer David. He said that his transfer had a political color, and requested from the government, an urgent intervention in this case.

Professor Jean Roussan Coffy, delegate of the FESE, requires an immediate meeting between the Federation and the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training (MENFP) to rule on the situation. As for the resignation of the Departmental Director, Mark Elder Charles, he declared that it was a compulsory stage in order to achieve a education of quality that promotes the President Michel Martelly in the country "It is high time that we removes the policy from the education in the South-East."

Recall that the students of the Lycée Wolson Chancy, of the municipality of Cayes-Jacmel, had gained the streets Monday, November 14 to protest against the transfer of substitute teacher Alcéus Ebénison and the dismissal of the Director Jean Lafond Rossini at the head of the Lycée. This had paralyzed all school activities in the municipality. Protesters hold responsible Marc Elder Charles and the Deputy Charles Kénol to be at the basis of this decision. The students of the Lycée Wolson Chancy are willing to take action to force the Departmental Director to reconsider his decision, that he describes of "political gift".
