40% of Moroccan children in 2nd year of primary school can not read or write

Staggering figures of the world bank.

As many as 40% percent of the students in the second year of the elementary school in Morocco are not able to read, write or perform basic mathematical skills, warns a report by the world bank entitled ' Learning to Realize Education Promise 2018 '.

The study also showed that the number of failing students is high in Morocco and that persons between 25 and 30 years old, an average of six years to complete their studies. This would normally need to be carried out in an average of three years.

A longer duration of study "does not necessarily mean that students develop their knowledge more", because they acquire the same amount of knowledge.

The world bank recalled that the quality of the training directly affects the quality of their working environment, to which students after their study will participate. Receiving better education is then reflected in the search for jobs in the labour market of the future.

Apart from these alarming figures, said the world bank praised the policy of Morocco t.o.v. to girls in schools to integrate in the past 11 years.  This is a favorable comparison with the 40-year-old duration that the United States names to the access of girls to school.

The report states further that in Morocco the education to mothers children's health has improved, because the mothers have more health knowledge acquired.

"Each additional year of the basic education for women is associated with about six fewer deaths per 1000 live births."
