A new agreement on the course of Haiti's education has been signed by the governments of both France and Haiti. The agreement, which holds under its purview three areas, under which both education ministries will cooperate, was signed by the Minister Delegate at France's Ministry of National Education, George Pau-Langevin and Haiti's Education Minister, Vanneur Pierre.
With their three tiered plan, the governments' agreement seeks to develop the pedagogy of digital teaching and learning with the utilization of ICT, information technology and communication. It is an e-learning objective that will focus on digital methods in the training of teachers as well as the evaluation and regulation of the education system.
The "lycées" are the state funded schools in Haiti. It was once the pride of every Haitian family who could send children to educate in these public schools. Vanneur Pierre, the Haitian Minister of National Education and Vocational Training has expressed his view and few corrective measures to bring back the glorious era that these "lycées" have left behind more than thirty years ago.
The minister after a series of joint revaluation survey with the directors of the schools has identified some of the main evils affecting proper functioning of these schools. He has said, the directors of the schools mostly lack good leadership and management quality as demanded. High absenteeism among the teachers is almost ignored. There is no good representative model school in the country anymore that we can be proud with. A management to be effective must place accountability along with responsibility. From now on, the directors and officials of the "public educational institutions of renewal" will further remain accountable to the Ministry of Education.
It was confirmed by National Office of State Examination's Director, Renan Michel that all preparations have been made for welcoming nearly 745,000 candidates for official exams to be held during the period June 19 through July 12. The Director reported that 6th and 9th fundamental years' cards were already distributed and the baccalaureate candidates' cards were also distributed to the Departmental Directorates. He also reported that the selection of the supervisors as well as examination centers was already completed for the entire territory.
Education Ministry's Deputy Director General Ecclésiaste Télémaque stated that the quality of the subjects of examination will be precise and clear and the degree of difficult will match to what has been taught during the academic year.
