Morocco’s new primary school curricula focus on science, math

October 08, 2020

Original Article:

Morocco’s Ministry of Education has made a series of changes to primary school curricula, including the allocation of more time for science and civic education classes.

Minister of Education Saaid Amzazi announced the changes in a press release on August 7.

The new changes, set to go into effect at the start of the 2020-2021 school year, include amendments to both the content and the form of the curricula.

One of the main changes is the transition from eight thematic units per subject per year to six. The change aims to reduce the content of curricula, allowing students to better grasp lessons.

The new curricula will also include new lessons and methodology for science and mathematics, as well as civic education, history, and geography. The reforms are similar to those the ministry made for Islamic education curricula in 2016.
