Due to salaries being lower when the grade is lower, younger students recieve less education due to the teacher's unwillingness to teach lower grades. Less children are getting education as they grow older which effects the % of litterate citizens as a community. Food and water were not available to everyone, most people would search for food, disregarding age, and go miles for water. Malnourishment is a huge issue among Haiti's children. Most won't eat for hours, even days. Child death rate is substantial and a top cause is starvation. The value of 5 gourdes is equivalent to one U.s dollar decreasing its economic value.

0-14 years: 38.1%
15-64 years: 58.5%
65 years and over: 3.4% In general, schools are not technologically-equipped. Textbooksare a concern. They are often in short supply and their price, can be restrictive for families who must strive to put food on the table.
