It would be great if the change would be made in Haiti for the children to be taught in Creole and French.

It beneficial to the individual, society and the nation as whole.

Because Creole is viewed and contunually portrayed as a "peasant", "lesser", "unintellectual" language, it has great negative effects on the population.

I hope the change is made during my lifetime.

In the meantime continue to celebrate our mother tongue!
