A long continuing responsibility of the Office of Education is the publication of bulletins describing education in other countries. Such bulletins are a vital part of a program to increase American understanding of education around the world. They include a growing series of studies on education in the Latin American Republics. "Education in the Republic of Haiti" brings up to date a 1948 Office of Education bulletin of similar nature written by Mercer Cook, Professor of Romance Languages, Howard University. The present edition is based on data gathered by the author in Haiti while there as a member of a technical assistance team in rural education under auspices of the U.S. International Cooperation Administration.
