Morocco seeks UNESCO assistance to upgrade educational system
Morocco, Education, 8/3/1999
The Moroccan National Education Department signed recently in Rabat a technical cooperation accord with the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning.
Under the accord, the UNESCO institute pledged to assist Morocco in working out a long-term educational policy adapted to the country's sociocultural legacy and development goals.
The UNESCO body will also upgrade the skills of those in charge of education planning, management, training and syllabi.
To adapt Moroccan education to the deep changes sweeping across Moroccan society and link training to the job market, the late King Hassan II had set up a special commission for the elaboration of a draft national charter sketching out Morocco's strategy in matters of education, training and related sectors.
In his first Throne Speech addressed last Friday to the nation, King Mohammed VI said he will firmly back up this project to combat unemployment and contribute to the creation of job opportunities to graduates.
