The MENFP counts on the support of the whole educational community for a successful revival in the respect of the health instructions which will be in force.
Meanwhile , the ministry invites students to continue training, in particular by consulting the PRATIC educational and learning resources platform where courses on basic and secondary programs are available, in particular for classes in state examinations. The web address is: pratic.menfp.gouv.ht
The courses are also available on the PRATIC Youtube channel of MENFP.
The MENFP reaffirms its desire to support the entire educational community so that the right to education is respected in all circumstances.
