ABSTRACT

In 1915, United States marines landed in Haiti ostensibly to bring peace to one of the world’s oldest republics. Occupation authorities
stayed for twenty years, controlling not only the political and economic life of the people but much of their education as well. This
study explains the nature of the American involvement and its impact upon Haitian education during those two decades.
