The Haitian Government leaves the burden of education on parents who can barely feed their children daily

Eunice Tassone - August 17 2017, 10:46 AM

Lack of government support of schools, especially in the mountain village schools, leave the burden of education on the parents, who can barely feed their children daily.

Droughts, hurricanes certainly don't help the situation when crops are destroyed.

Parents have to make the choice of feeding their children or paying tuition.

Parents certainly want their children to go to school but common sense and lack of resources dictate their choice.

Minister of Education needs to start supporting the education of children in the mountains where most of the population lives.
