Our purpose is not at all to draw attention to the causes of underdevelopment, on which many national and international researchers are constantly working. We would only like, without denying anything of the complexity of the Haitian case, to support that a path exists for the development of Haiti: it passes by the establishment of an identical basic formal education for all the Haitians, during the years schools using the two national languages Creole and French recognized by the 1987 Constitution, a constitution denied and abandoned at the level of the Haitian parliament, which today has put the country in this critical state of chaos.
We have heard that this would be an uncertain truism. The two centuries of Haiti's independence show a real inequality between urban and rural schools. During the American occupation of Haiti between 1915 and 1934, the government favored technical and vocational schools leaving the great mass of the population in illiteracy.
