France to build high school in Coteaux, Francois Hollande Visit
One of the agreements signed during the visit in Haiti of French President Francois Hollande is the construction of a high school in Coteaux
Hollande says France is pledging to invest $145 million from 2015-2020 in infrastructure improvements. Of that amount, $56 million will be used to develop the education system. Protestors feel otherwise. They demand much more money in reparations be spent on education, healthcare facilities, and the road system.
Some citizens though believe Hollande may provide more job opportunities than currently exists. And it is interesting to note France forgave the remaining $77 million owed by Haiti following the 2010 quake.
