The Dominican Teachers’ Association (ADP) has rejected a proposal to teach Haitian Creole in Dominican public schools

The Dominican Teachers’ Association (ADP) has rejected a proposal to teach Haitian Creole in Dominican public schools. The proposal, put forth by the Mecca Center for Legal Studies (Cejus), calls for Creole to be taught in public schools. ADP president Eduardo Hidalgo remarked that it would add nothing to the educational system or the professional development of Dominicans.

Hidalgo, nevertheless, said that he is in agreement with the teaching of English, German, Italian and French or any other language that would strengthen the tourism and industrial sectors. He went on to say that most tourists come from the United States, Canada, France, Germany and Italy.

Education Minister Andrés Navarro said he is not familiar with the proposal that was apparently submitted by Cejus to the Ministry of Education.
