  1. yes he was able to change and improve life for people in haiti because he had good intentions at first

  2. Angelica Zarate

    I think that Aristide was able to improve lives for people in Haiti because even though he caused violence he was able to improve literacy in Haiti.

  3. Tuuta period 2

    No because they just used money for themselves.

  4. aristede did improve live in haitie he left for a long time and let baby dok to do his work and know he just going to be a lot Diffrent know he id rich.

  5. I believe Aristide improved some small aspects for the people in Haiti but in the end, he was accused of many things including corruption. Haiti even now suffers as a country with no way to end to poverty.

  6. Anais Delgadillo

    Some people may think that Aristide improved life for Haitians because he was somewhat better than the leaders before him but I don’t thing he didn’t improve anything because he became corrupt and the poor people didn’t see no change in the economy.

  7. Yes, Aristide was able to improve life for people in Haiti because he didn’t make a lot people disappear like the previous leaders and he did not become president by cheating also he came back to help Haiti after the earthquake even thought he was forced out twice

  8. Janeli romero per;8

    Aristide did improve Haiti because he help a lot of people in Haiti.He was trying to make Haiti a better place. He kind did he try his best

  9. Aristide was not able to improve lives in Haiti because they kept forcing him out to leave and they tried to assiassinate him.

  10. I think that Jean Bertrand Aristide was able to improve the life for people in Haiti because he provided them with schools and in hospitals although he didn’t accomplish his goals about equality in between the wealthy and the poor.

  11. mohamed dobashi

    Aristid was not able to help because the united state helped Aristed needed help from them.

  12. well some what Aristide did improve in haiti because he did change some tinkes has happened in haiti .

  13. Aristide did not improve life for Haitian people because he acted like Baby Doc/Papa Doc because he had people kill the people that were against his ways. Aristide did not improve life for Haitian people because people were still suffering and there was still unequality.

  14. No I feel like aristide was not able to improve life for haiti because I think he started letting the power get to him and I say that because if you pay attention you would notice how he started having a mansion, food, and started using violence as people say (if he was spoken about)

  15. alaaaldeen ali

    yes aristide did improve life for people in haiti because wen he was there they were doingemail good but wen he left they wasn’t doing so good so they asked for aristide and baby doc back and the nigerian citizans wanted them back to haiti needed Aristide to protect them and when he came back that’s what aristide did

  16. Jabrion Hopkins

    jean bertrand did not be able to improve the life of haiti because he was exile so that mean he did something wrong to get put down from his place.

  17. shamari payne per 8

    Aristide did not really help haiti because while trying out he was forced out his first time so that took some time away which led unto the second election.After that he was still not able after being re elected because he started not to care as much and fulfill his promises instead he stole money, did not help out the poor, and made people disappear.

  18. I believe that Aristide’s Presidency was better because if people gave and shared their honest opinion’s they wouldn’t be killed or come up missing…,also People who said that he was doing the same things as baby doc was From what people said , people in the government did not have any evidence of him Having things to do with people being harmed.

  19. Someone that disagree with me would say that Aristide did improve haiti because he was a preacher but i believe he did not improve haiti because at the end of the day the people were still hungry and he was not hungry because he had food every day and because he left them with out saying anything or why he really left.

  20. No Aristide did not improve haiti because people were still poor and loosing things in there country.

  21. I believe that Jean Bertrand Aristide was not able to improve life for people in Haiti. He promised to help out the poor but was unable to.Instead he left Haiti twice and let everything become worse. The only thing he did to improve life for people in Haiti was build schools, give scholarships, and create campaigns but that all got ruined by the earthquake.

  22. Well no because when he was president he got a mansion and having a lot of feast with his frriendś so no also haiti was starving and was still poor and horrible infraustructre.

  23. Anais Delgadillo

    Some people would say Aristide improved the life of people because he was some what better than the leaders before him but I believe he didn’t improve anything because he became corrupt and the poor people didn’t see any of his promises come true.

  24. well when he was 1st elected Aristide did change 68% of the people lives. Everybody in haiti wanted him and did not want him to leave. But after the macoutes thought since he was being a little violent then the macoutes would be violent back.

  25. I say for the most part Aristide did help out the poor in his first election. In his second election however he was more greedy and left people starving whilst he was wealthy.

  26. Namonie Bullard

    Jean Bertrand Aristide was not able to improve life for people in Haiti because after all the time Aristide have been president he has never improve the people, wealthy people was still wealthy, poor people was still poor and Economy grew worse.

  27. no aristide didn’t improve haiti because he didn’t do anything like the first year when he was president , he just kept all the money they would give him and he would put it for him not for the poor .

  28. At first he was doing ok being the president but there was still people that think he wasn’t good enough to be the president of haiti.

  29. i believe aristide did not improve haiti because before he came they were struggling & broke and after he left there still struggling and need help . only think he improve was people belif

  30. Aristide could of made life better because he do help with the killings for a while and if went by his word instead of changing and stared to be just like Papa Doc he would of made some type of good change.

  31. beofor Aristide left Haiti, he wasnt improving life for the Haitians, all the money he was getting, was going towards his self on cars ,mansions, and dinner party, while he left the Haitians to starve to death, but when Haiti had that big Earthquake, and aristide came back,thats when him and baby doc started helping and started supporting haiti because of the devastation

  32. taniyah stamps period6

    Aristide did not improve the live in haiti because he didn´t do what he promised which was help the the poor and ect. because they still was the same after and he left his posession early.

  33. aristide was able to improve haiti in the end when they needed help but at the end of his term he left them stranded with no president .

  34. jean bertrand wasn’t able to improve life for people in haiti because he really didn’t to nothing for them but leave but he eventually came back to help

  35. Elvira Rivera-Soto

    In my opinion, Jean Bertrand Aristide was able to improve life for the people in Haiti because he brought back hope that the people in Haiti had lost due to all the corrupt leaders they had before.

  36. I think Aristide didn’t improve Haiti because he turn their back on them by doing the things that papa doc did.

  37. I believe that he wasn’t able to improve Haiti because the equality did not improve and the economy grew worse. Not only that he left without an explanation or without saying anything.

  38. Jean Bertrand Aristide did not help people in Haiti because he took their money instead of giving it to them and left them when he knew they needed help and they looked up to him.

  39. Michael Saavedra

    No Aristide did not improve the economy because he made it worste than what it was.

  40. i think that he did for a little bit but then he got distracted on what people thought and he started to kill people just like papa doc , baby doc

  41. Aristide was not able to improve life for people in haiti because he was a corrupt leader and he didnt do anything to improve haitis economy.

  42. Jakala Muhammad

    Yes Aristide was able to improve life for Haitians at first when he was first elected for president but the second time the opportunity came around it was all about Aristide being rich and all about making the wealthy people wealthier mean while the poor people got worse and worse

  43. I think Aristide did not change or improve haiti because he caused violence and barely helped the poor and he was corrupted

  44. Overall Aristide was not able to improve the life of Haitian people in any sort of way.He never really had control and left the country multiple times to get help from the U.S. but he did manage to sort of help out after the 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti.

  45. Aristide did not improve life for Haiti because he had promised that he would help the poor but never did he do something to help the poor out , the people were still struggling . Aristide had gotten a lot of money but he did not do anything to help but keep it all to himself.

  46. Jasmine Y. Reed Per 5

    Well on some kind of way he did improve life for haiti but then he started caring more about the wealthy people and less about the poor people. I think he needs to donate money to the poor people so their problems can be solved.

  47. He helped them and also did not. He helped them because he fixed Haiti a little more. At the same time he kept the money, food, and power all to himself.

  48. Aristide never even supported Haiti as he said to do because the wealthy were in the way of helping the poor. Aristide couldn’t handle the Macoutes and help the weak at the same time.

  49. Aristide was able to improve life for people in Haiti, or so he claims. He was a pretty good leader, but I guess not good enough because people wanted to assassinate him. But people did re-elect him so I guess he was all they had.

  50. No Aristide did not improve haiti society because he was being corrupt leader on the low and he also made haiti get worse by causing people to be more violent . He also made more be poor then ever before and haiti people felt like he was giving the wealthy people more help and attention.

  51. Jean Bertrand Aristide did not improve Haiti because the people were struggling and they became more poor. He was also exiled from the country. All the hospitals, schools, and everything he built were destroyed by the earthquake.

  52. no Aristide did not b/c they still broke

  53. I think that he did improve because by time more and more people wanted Aristide back so he might of done something good that so many people wanted him back like making people feel more safe in Haiti.

  54. I think he did not because after he came back nothing changed and he didn’t improve anything because they were still poor and still needed supplies and resources to survive.

  55. Aristide was not able to improve the lives of the people of Haiti because he was just doing the same as every other corrupt leader Haiti, he was taking from the poor and murdering people who were involved with the military and Macoutes

  56. First of all their life actually improved but it did not goes well because his mind it is not the same as before he was trying to help the society and the economy in the beginning but after that trouble he had he want to change the politics but it did not get better.

  57. In my opinion I think he did in the beginning but he became cocky and started to abuse his power and do what he wanted to do not what the people wanted or needed.

  58. Kimberly Esquivel

    I think that Aristide was not able to improve life for the people of Haiti because he ended up taking what could have been for the poor people and he only angered the Macoutes more and continuously made things worse for the poor people of Haiti.

  59. I think aristide did improved the life in haiti because he and baby doc came back to haiti to help build back the houses and building that was destroyed in the 7.0 earthquake

  60. Jean Bertrand Aristide was able to improve life for Haiti because he helped people get shelter and get education but also he didn’t help the people because he kinda changed to being wealthy while many where poor didn’t eat food.

  61. No Aristide did not help improve Haiti because there was still place that were damaged and dead bodies still laying around till this day

  62. Aristide did not improve life for people in haiti because Aristide promised the poor that they will win more money but he never made that promise happen. People would say that Aristide kept the money to himself.

  63. Aristide did not improve life for people in haiti because he promised them that he would make them win more money. People would say that Aristide kept people’s money for him instead of helping them win more money

  64. Jean Bertrand Aristide was not able to improve life for people in Haiti because after all the time Aristide have been president he has never improve the people, wealthy people was still wealthy, poor people was still poor and Economy grew worse.

  65. Aristide was not able to help, because hey was kicked out of haiti then brought back with not a whole lot of time. So he let his friend Rene Preval be president till he got picked, the wealthy used oppertunities with Rene and Aristide which started rumors among people.

  66. yes aristide did improve life for people in haiti because wen he was there they were doingemail good but wen he left they wasn’t doing so good so they asked for aristide and baby doc back and they got him back haiti needed Aristide to protect them and when he came back that’s what aristide did

  67. Yes, I think that Jean Bertrand Arisride was able to help the life of Haitian people. Even though he was almost killed by just teaching Haitian people a new religion, he got help from USA and made the Haitian people feel a little bit more safer.

  68. Jean Bertrand Aristide was not able to improve life for people in Haiti. Because he also used violence, didn’t helped out the poor, ran away from Haiti when they needed him. That’s why I think that Jean didn’t improve life in Haiti

  69. I think he didn’t improve life for people in Haiti because he left and he used violence to keep the power.Aristide is a religious person that was elected president because he made the people think he could change things in Haiti but I think he didn’t.

  70. I believe that JEAN BERTRAND ARISTIDE did not improve life in haiti because so many people in haiti where and are still suffering from starvation and dehydration and lack of school and hospitals.

  71. I think he was able to kind of improve life in Haiti for the people. He was able to run the country without the macutes. But he kind of didn’t improve life for them. I mean he was able to keep them safe then they use to be people got bold when he ran for power an they weren’t backing down to people llike Baby Doc.

  72. Aracelia, period 2

    Jean Bertrand Aristide was not able to improve life for the people in Haiti because he was promising to help out the poor people by making equality happen, but either way many poor people were still poor.

  73. David Contreras

    I think that Aristide did at some point when he first started to be the president of Haiti did help improve the lives of the people in Haiti. He did help ease things down and the macoute stopped killing people for the minute. But then again he was forced out easily which left the people so vulnerable.

  74. Aristide did not improve life he just made it worse by doing what some of the things leaders in Nigeria did like take money and use it for themselves,torture those for answers,and Make your self president for your own good.

  75. I really dont know if Aristide improved life in Haiti because he is confusing and doesnt know what he wants to do as a leader.

  76. i think Aristide improved alot of the peoples life by from getting help from the united states when the macoutes try to kill the people and for building all the schools and hospitals.

  77. Jean Bertrand Aristide was not able to improve life for the Haitians yeah he said that he was going to make everything equal for the poor and wealthy but instead of working on that, Aristide took money and kept it to himself. All the power and money went to him and life for the poor Haitians did not improve.

  78. Jean Bertrand Aristide was able to improve the life of Haiti but wealthy didn’t want to contribute because the wealthy people didn’t want to lose their power or wealth.

  79. not really because he didn’t help the poor get money or anything better like food or a better place to live when aristide has a mansion.

  80. yes aristide was able to improve life in haiti because he stop the mercoutes leave the people alone and he helped the get food and water and taught them

  81. Christopher Robles

    he did improve a little bit but he did a little things that are similar to the last president and they didn’t like him as much as before.

  82. Yes, because after Haiti went from bad to worse ,Aristide & Baby Doc Duvalier returned from exile to help Haiti.

  83. No he was not able to make life in Haiti easier because of all the commotion caused by the time he was able to start being president his time was up in the office so maybe he lost his momentum.And also the country kept losing money.

  84. Yes he was able to improve the life for the people in haiti because he went back and helped the people where the earthquake happened in

  85. WAS JEAN BERTRAND ARISTIDE ABLE TO IMPROVE LIFE FOR PEOPLE IN HAITI? EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER.

    He can improve it because when Aristide needs help to the USA president maybe they have a deal he will be exiled and they will help him that’s why he didn’t improve the life for people in Haiti.

  86. Jean Bertrand Aristide was not able to improve life for people in Haiti. He promised to help out the poor but did nothing to help them. Instead he left Haiti and let everything become worse. The only thing he did to improve life for people in Haiti was build schools, give scholarships, and create campaigns but that all got ruined by the earthquake.

  87. Quinton period 1

    No i don’t think he improved life for people in haiti because the people were still struggling and nothing changed. Only thing that improved was how many years you could be a president. Everything else the same they still have problems with the leader and now they have a big problem with fixing haiti after the earthquake.

  88. I think that Aristide was a little helpfull for the country of Haiti,he did actually improve some of the infrastructer in Haiti,he made some hospitals,and builded schools for the people’s education,but he wasn’t able to chane the Economy problem in haiti,but he did his best I think he did more than his share.

  89. Aristide was not able to help Haiti because a lot happened. He only made it kind of worse for the Haiti people. He disappointed the people. If the Macoutes was not there maybe it would have been better. He could of improved it.

  90. Alex Matias Ramirez, per:1

    WAS JEAN BERTRAND ARISTIDE ABLE TO IMPROVE LIFE FOR PEOPLE IN HAITI? EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER. Jean Bertrand did not able to improve the life of haiti b/c he was exile and people got kick out too.

  91. yulissa chavez

    i think he did improve live in haiti because some people want him back so he probably did something good so people still want him

  92. No Aristide did not improve Haiti because they was still poor and nothing improved .
