Natives of Haiti Speaking to Students Today

Speakers: Two New Trier employees, Mr. Bonhomme and Mr Cayemitte, brought a group of about 6-8 teachers to Haiti this summer to explore possibilities for helping Haiti.

Mr. Bonhomme and Mr. Cayemitte spoke about current health, education, welfare and the employment situation in Haiti. They spoke of historical and political conditions that have contributed to current problems in Haiti and of their wish to help their people.

History: Small Groups teaching each other from Zinn and Diamond readings. Juniors and Seniors in mixed groups today.
