Education system in Haiti: Preschool to Secondary levels


In Haiti, the Constitution of 1987 specifies that the State is responsible for primary education is free and compulsory. The Education system starts at the preschool level, which is followed by nine years of Fundamental Education, upon whose successful completion a Brevet Diploma is obtained. Secondary education is comprised of four years of schooling, sanctioned by a final exam and Diploma called theBaccalauréat. Starting at the second cycle of Fundamental Education, pupils have the option of following professional and vocational education instead of the formal education cycles leading to the Baccalauréat.

As it stands, the education system is dominated by private schools, some subsidized by the State (some religious schools), some operated as non-profit educational institutions (supported by church groups, non-profits, or community schools), but most ran as for-profit schools. Although private education services are encouraged by State Laws, the State has limited capacity to oversea and to monitor the proliferation of privately held schools, and many operate without legal accreditation from the Ministry of Education. As a consequence, the quality of education offered in such establishments cannot be guaranteed by State institutions.
