Careers in Bayonnais and Gonaives, Haiti - - For a long time, it has been obvious that the classes in the upper end of the high school would eventually become large. The 11th grade now has 78 students (13th grade is the last year). As the bubble of larger classes rose to and through 9th grade, and is approaching 12th grade, the National Exams in 9th and 12th are becoming stumbling blocks to a greater number of students. The inevitable result is dropouts, for they cannot advance to 10th or 13th grades without passing the exams. Trades will be part of the answer for these students.
