You are a man with a vision, and you are ahead of your time. You forgot a couple of very important points, and I just want to bring them up. The majority of Haitians are iliterate, and we do not speak English.

I believe there is hope for the next generation, and three languages should be taught in school early.

The children need to be in school at the age of two, and half a day it ok so it can accommodate a large number of children.

The kids should start learning English, Spanish, and French.

Their brains are like sponges at that age, and they can learn very easily.

They should be exposed to the languages by watching movies, playing games, and children programs (cartoon).

I know kids here who have learned how to read, and even write from television programs such as Sesame Street.

Haitians must speak English, Spanish, and French third to compete in the global economy.

We are totally isolated, and missed opportunities because we do not speak Spanish.

If the government implement some rigid programs, and invest in education we can become the next silicone valley in 15-20 years.
