Are the kids of Haiti required to go to school ?
If so – through what grade level ?
Does Haiti have its own school system like we have in the USA ?
If not, who provides the school system?
Is it at any cost to each child?
Do you still teach English in school? At what grade level ?
Also, you asked what else might be interesting to know about school in Haiti. The kids get report-cards just like in the USA and most of the way they teach here is based on memorization. The kids do lots of chanting back to the teacher. You can start school as an older kid, so sometimes there are great big kids sitting with little 1st graders. Right now we have some kids as old as 17 in the 6th grade class. At the end of 6th grade you have to take a big government test and pass it in order to go on to secondary school, if your parents can afford to send you that is.
