Three years after the devastating earthquake of 2010, the education of children in Haiti has seen significant improvement. Many schools have been reconstructed, and more children are going to school now than before the earthquake.

Yet, more needs to be done to ensure that every child has access to free, quality education. Expanding access to education for vulnerable children, improving the quality of education, ensuring equal opportunities for girls and boys and linking education to development remain some of the main challenges for the educators and Government of Haiti.
