Haiti – FLASH : Threats and attacks against schools, the Ministry launchs a cry of alarm
Tuesday, September 8, faced the threats and persistent attacks against schools, in particular against Fritz Pierre Louis high school, Le Normalien college and Roger Anglade college, by individuals posing as pupils, students or others, Pierre Josué Agénor Cadet, the Minister of National Education, launches a cry of alarm for the respect of the right to education and the protection of the pupils and our schools.
“It is unacceptable, under the pretext of wage or other demands, that individuals manipulate students and continue to attack schools and systematically violate the right to education and respect for others.
How to justify such violent and gratuitous attacks against students and teaching and administrative staff when they find themselves peacefully in their schools?
How to encourage this violence between high school students themselves, to fulfill hidden goals ? How far will we go in the fall of our humanity to attack humans, institutions or other key symbols of the Republic ?”
The Minister who reiterates his commitment and determination to protect the school and the right to education in all circumstances; reaffirms that “nothing can justify attacks on schools and students in the classroom and expresses its sympathies to the victims and to all those who have been affected by this gratuitous and indiscriminate violence.”
