The paper examines the wide variety of factors that, combined, cause difficulties for immigrant Haitian adolescents in American schools. The writer cites language and cultural differences, lack of motivation and parental support as a few of the issues that are reflected in the poor academic record of Haitian children. Finally, the writer proposes an educational system that is more open to students of Haitian background.

From the Paper:

"In terms of absolute numbers, Haitians settling in the United States are not great in comparison to the nation's population. Haitian immigrants, however, do bring with them significant and special problems with which both they and the nation must deal. Not least among these problems are those related to education for Haitian children and adolescents immigrating to the United States. Such problems are especially significant for adolescents who are expected to enter the American educational system at the secondary school level, as such students do not have the luxury of time to become acclimated to and prepared for academic demands of a foreign system."
