Haitians students in the DR on the rise

Education Minister Alejandrina German says ministry records show 20,767 Haitian nationals are enrolled in Dominican schools. The minister added that 19,446 students receive an education in public schools while 1,321 study in private institutions. German says that the number includes only those who have registered as Haitian nationals. German says this is proof the DR doesn’t have ill feelings or exercise discriminatory practices against Haitians. The Minister said that the Haitians have the same rights as Dominican students.
