Haiti Classroom condition

Have you ever wondered how can a child learn in such a tough environment. This is the daily reality of many school age children in Haiti. They spend their day in a hot classroom, with no electricity, not even a running fan. The seating is often not comfortable. In some schools such as the public Lycees in particular, you find students standing up, seating in the windows, by the entrance door just to assist class. This is beside other problems you often find in the school system in Haiti such as teachers unqualified for the subjects they are teaching. These teachers are often called "Jack of all trades". Also, just like in the transportation or prison system in Haiti, most classrooms are overcrowded.
