StoryHalf of children in Haiti are not enrolled in school because the families are unable to come up with the money to send their child to school. The average cost of a year of school depends on grade level & if it is a public or private school and averages $150-550 for an ENTIRE YEAR! That includes tuition, uniform/shoes, & books/supplies. That small amount keeps many children from an education. But wait! You say public school, why can't all the kids get an education there? Because even a public school has a small cost of tuition, plus a uniform and books must be purchases to attend, and if you have no employment, how will you be able to afford these things, especially when you don't even have enough to eat? You won't or if you can, but have multiple children you might have to decide which one gets to attend and the others have to stay home.
