Online Education Curriculum to Target Rural Students

Haitian-American and Technology Administrator at Massachusetts University Information Technology Department, Alexandrine Policar, is interested in collaborating with Haiti State University (HSU) to create an online education program. As the recipient of a Fulbright award, she will use it to fund her research and development of online curriculums.

Policar desires to apply computer technology for the localization of higher education for students in rural areas. Impetus for the project arose from Haiti's 2010 earthquake. Policar traveled to Haiti soon after the quake and discovered while holding webinars and classes online she could do so, even at 300 miles from Port-au-Prince. She got to thinking about possibilities of offering an online education curriculum to those in outlying areas too poor to reside in Port-au-Prince, where HSU is located. A second aim is to help overhaul HSU's outdated curriculum that does not meet demands of the 21st century's technology revolution.

University of Ethnology Students Battle Police Over Student Killing

The government of Haiti (GOH) has low tolerance when it comes to democratic demonstrations. Last fall--for unknown reasons--the Haitian National Police (HNP) fired at and killed a student on the University of Haiti school grounds. Five other students were taken into custody and jailed before charges were dropped and they were freed.

Angered by the killing, Ethnology students assembled to demonstrate. When the HNP arrived, they set fire to a classroom, burning everything in it. They also fired at length on the demonstrators to scatter them.

The HNP, a corrupt law-enforcement agency, has been infiltrated by former military officers of the Haitian National Army (HNA), whose ultimate aim is a government take-over. The HNP is infamous for perpetrating human-rights abuses while the GOH looks the other way. The HNP operates as if it were still under the control of François Duvalier, terrorist president of the 1950s and 60s.
