Haiti human rights group complains of ‘systematic violation’ of children’s rights
A human rights group says there is a “systematic violation” of the right of children to obtain an education in Haiti.
In a seven-page report released to coincide with National Child Day, the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH) said the systematic violation was caused by many problems including the non-qualification of teachers, overcrowding in classrooms and the unavailability of didactic works.
In addition, the human rights group noted that there has also been a decline in academic training and there was also the inaccessibility to education, for several children of school age.
