“Timoun Lekòl nan Jwe” (School Kids at Play)
Although primary education is free and compulsory, only a small proportion of Haitian children attend school because of distance and availability of facilities and staff, and cost of uniforms and textbooks. The schools are typically private or church-administered institutions. Approximately three-fifths of the adult population is literate and the rate of illiteracy is higher in the countryside than in the cities.
