Student fails, because of French

Vilo Exantus - February 19 2013, 5:56 AM

I agree with you, French is not the reason the student fails, the teacher is the reason, because he does not know how to teach the children in a way that they could understand the subject and do their home work and answer the questions in their own words.

We have too many teachers who are not trained, qualified and that's why our children are failing.

First of all, I never agreed with that decision that Mr Bernard, Minister of Education then took for Education in Haiti be done in Creole, while he and his colleagues, talking for our children in Haiti to be educated in Creole sent their children to France and Sorbonne to study.

Through that their decision, we became backward and could not compete with the rest of the French World, for Creole is a broken language spoken as dialect in a few Countries of the world, not an international language recognized officially on the international scene.

However, I agree that Creole be thought in our schools as our dialect, but not that our education be done in solely in it which would reduce their effectiveness to communicate with the est of the world.

We need to keep emphasizing both the importance of the Education in French and the maintenance of the teaching of the Creole in our Schools.

Both should go hand in hand and not one without the other.

May God bless you!
