the start of the school year delayed for more than 2,000 schools in Morocco

The health situation has been worrying for several weeks in Morocco. On average, some 2,000 new cases are recorded every day, forcing the authorities to take various emergency measures across the country. Distance education has been imposed on establishments located in cities with a high rate of contamination, but also for all children from infected families.

Olivier Brochet, the director of the Agency for French Education Abroad, said during a point made in Paris on the start of the school year, that the French high school in Casablanca, which welcomes nearly 4,000 students, has closed its doors. The Descartes high school in Rabat, educating around 2,500 students, also closed at the beginning of the week after the detection of several cases of contamination.

It must be said that several voices have asked for the postponement of the start of the school year because of the sources of contamination detected everywhere. But the ministry maintained the date, reassuring parents that the conditions will be met to ensure the health well-being of students and teachers.

With this new decision which affects more than 2,000 schools, Moroccans denounce risky decisions and a situation that is spiraling out of control. In a recent study, Human Rights Watch found that distance education further widens social inequalities.
