Help for Haiti Must Include Embracing Creole

Haitian Creole, one of the national languages in Haiti, is widely underused in official documentation.  In “Help for Haiti Must Include Embracing Creole,” Jacques Pierre examines the problem of the lack of use of Haitian Creole in the Haitian Government and the education system in Haiti. French, one of Haiti’s national languages, is more often used in these places and is often thought the “better route.” Yet it creates a barrier between those who do not speak french and those in the government. It separates the two. Pierre talks more about this and the necessity for the incorporation of Haitian Creole.
