Why Moroccan Schools Need To Improve

The economy of Morocco continues to become service-based and the job market are more focused in employing people with new skills that can be applied in real life as well as competencies. The only problem lies with the teaching of foreign languages and how it does not meet the needs of the students who are already struggling in the 21st century.

Though there are many documents official supporting the teaching of English as well as statements released in various press conferences, this learning of a foreign language still follows strict traditional paradigms.

In a recent statement from the Minister of National Education and Vocational Training, Mr Rachid Benmoukhtar, expressed that they are focusing more on foreign languages in order to create more opportunities for the future generation so they may be able to easily find a job and be more competitive since everything is constantly changing. This sentiment is not new and has also been expressed last 2000 during the National Charter on Education and Training as well as the two previous school years.

The question is what the government is doing in the education system in order for this statement to take effect as said by the minister. Though there have been many claims in the official statements as well as documents, none have been implemented in Moroccan schools. The only step that the ministry of education did to improve the teaching of English in the country is through the adoption of International and Vocational Streams for the Moroccan Baccalaureate. In reality and practice in schools, there is no change when it comes to promoting the English language. As a proof, the teachers are still using the same books in school and the teaching materials are still the same – with the use of board and chalk. In general, the curriculum as well as the syllabus remains unchanged.

It is known that in order for the schools to teach another language more proficiently, there should be assessment procedures done. With the growing need for more competent teachers, native English speakers get paid to teach English abroad.

Children From Well-Off Families Have More Chances To Academic Tutoring

Bee Academic Tutoring prepares students for lifetime success. Studies in countries that have both public and private education systems have revealed that students who are enrolled in private schools have more opportunities to undertake tutoring than their counterparts in public schools. The research on 500 households also revealed that the wealthier the family and the higher qualifications they possess, the more that they are willing to spend for high tuition.

According to families that earned more than $6,000 a month, they spend about 30% or 50% more than less well-off families for the tuition of their children from preschool to secondary school. Parents who have graduated are more likely to spend up to four times more tuition than their counterparts who have only received primary education.

The research studies further state that the wealthier the parents and the more educated they are, the more advantages that their children have when it comes to access to various resources. This is the reason why children from private schools tend to receive academic tutoring. According to Associate Professor Jason Tan of National Institute of Education, parents with disposable income for private schooling have also demonstrated a willingness to do everything they could to ensure that their children gain quality education.

For example, in Singapore, families with a monthly household income of more than $6,000 pay a median amount of $200 each month for the tuition of their children in preschool. On the other hand, families that is earning $3,000 and below pay about $100 for their children in the same grade. Those in the higher income level have no qualms about spending $300 each month for tuition in primary school which is more than double the $125 spent by the less well-off.

Singaporean housewife Hui Choy Leng has the spending power to pay for more tuition. She spends about $1,000 for mathematics and Chinese tuition for a daughter in secondary 2. Her aim is to help her daughter pull up her grades and address the difficulties in understanding certain topics. She certainly does not mind paying for academic tutoring as long as she can help her children survive and gain quality education.

It was reported that an outstanding ₤6 billion was released to help the schools all over the UK and ₤28 million of this fund will be dedicated to Southampton and Hampshire.

Government Minister Nick Gibb visited Southampton, particularly an old crumbling school, and had announced the major funding boost for the schools there. In his visit to Valentine Primary School located in Scholing, he saw the unfavorable condition that the school was in. He was shown the damages that the windows had sustained over the years, the patches of mould and the areas where leaks are a common occurrence.

School staff said that the main hall roof was in a worse condition and needs a whole year of major work. The school area too was not spared from damages with a large part of it being closed because the safety of the pupils might be compromised due to falling bricks.

Fortunately, changes are set to be made for Valentine Primary as Mr. Gibb announced that the school will be one of 227 who will benefit from the ₤6bn funding that also includes ₤4bn which will be distributed to various local authorities and educational institutions for other projects. ₤2bn has been allocated to the Priority School Building Programme.

The conservative education minister also said that the county education chiefs and head teachers of various schools will be receiving more funds to help them conduct repair work and maintenance. By 2017, it is expected that the Southampton City Council will be receiving ₤5.3 million while ₤23 million will be given to the county council.

While some of the money will be given directly to the schools, majority of it will still be handed to the councils and other organizing groups who will oversee the smooth operations of the schools.

The Department of Education had guaranteed that every school will be given a share of the fund for smaller scale repair and maintenance.
