MIT Associate Professor of Linguistics Michel DeGraff recently received a one million-dollar grant from the National Science Foundation for his linguistics research in Haiti, which includes developing classroom tools to teach science and math in Haitian Creole (Kreyòl) for the first time. We spoke with him about his vision for the research, about the Kreyòl language, and the future of education in Haiti.
