Haiti Education - NO MORE Graduation ceremonies except in PHILO, Education minister says

Haiti Education Minister says ENOUGH with all these graduation ceremonies costing Haitian parents TOO MUCH money each year... Starting immediately, the only graduation ceremony permitted by the Ministere de l'Education Nationale et de la Formation Professionnelle (MENF) is for "Classe Philo", the last year of school in Haiti...

This decision seems to receive approval from many Haitian parents on the social media networks, one commentator posted on Facebook: "Excellent decision in a country where the economic conditions of the population is really difficult..."

Parents in Haiti have been complaining about the fact that they are forced to dish out lots of money for school graduations and many times, they just don't have it...

What do you think about that?
