Haiti education system under scrutiny

Critics say government has fallen far short on pledges to provide free schooling for over one million students.

    Haitian President Michel Martelly has claimed that public education is one of the top priorities of his government, and pledged during his election campaign to provide free schooling for more than a million students per year. 

    Two years after Martelly took office, many say he is falling far short of his promises amid widespread mismanagement in the country's education system.
