According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Haiti is a Caribbean country located in the Greater Antilles region of the Caribbean Sea. It is bordered by the Dominican Republic to the east and Cuba to the north. The geography of Haiti is diverse, ranging from tropical rainforest to dry desert regions. Its terrain consists of mountains, valleys, and coastal plains. The highest point in Haiti is Pic la Selle at 8,793 feet (2,680 m). The education system in Haiti has been plagued with challenges since its independence in 1804. Following a period of political turmoil and instability, education reform efforts began in earnest in 1990 with the adoption of a new constitution that emphasized free and compulsory primary schooling for all children. Despite this progress, educational attainment rates remain low compared to other countries in the region due to limited access to quality education and inadequate funding for schools. Primary school enrollment has increased significantly over the years but secondary school enrollment remains low due to lack of resources and poverty. Furthermore, gender disparities persist as girls are less likely than boys to be enrolled or complete their schooling due to cultural norms around marriage and childbearing age for women. Despite these challenges, there have been some successful initiatives such as community-based schools that focus on providing basic education for children living in remote areas as well as vocational training programs that target youth who have not completed primary school or who lack job skills needed to enter the job market.
