Education is the corner stone of any developing society, it is the key through which we can improve our life standers, express ourselves, and speak our mind. But, in Morocco education is anything but organized, successful and powerful system. It is neglected and only few care about it especially in rural areas.
Azilal, is my hometown, I was born in one of its rural areas. I was lucky because we moved from there and I get the chance to complete my studies, but there are a lot of children who still living there, they face plenty of problems, they have to walk half an hour twice a day to reach the so тcalled school- which is nothing but a room, where all students gathered, even though they study in different levels and thought by the same teacher. In winter things get worse, since the roads get slippery and impossible to cross them due to snow and heavy rains. It is quiet difficult to solve problems like these because there are no associations that gives priority to education.
These issues are not new, they are rooted in previous generations, let us take my parents as an example, they are not educated for the simple reason that they were no schools at the time, except the traditional one where the only thing that they do is memorizing the Coran, so there was no languages or subject matter.
My hometown is a life example of the situation of education in Morocco, but things should not remain the same. The coming generation rely on us to afford them with suitable education system. Through different activities we would help those kids to get their own right in education. We as youth should struggle to afford them with better schools that contains more than a single classes, good teachers, and libraries with access for all, not only but also to provide them with new technologies that definitely would make the presses of learning easier.
