Two Moroccans officials have called for national efforts to improve the quality of education in the country.
This came in a press conference to present the results of the national program to assess the educational achievements of students in 2016, organized by the Supreme Council for Education and Training and Scientific Research on Wednesday, in the capital, Rabat.
An adviser to the Moroccan king, Omar Izzeman said the national program results "revealed shocking facts".
Izzeman who is also the head of the Supreme Council for Education and Training and Scientific Research said "the results are far from the required level," adding that "our education is in danger".
He explained that "the program to assess students achievements aim to identify problems affecting the education system as well as ways to overcome them".
Director of the National Authority for Evaluation, Rahma Bourquia said the national program to assess the achievements of Moroccan students results reveal general weakness especially in the Arabic, French and mathematics.
She added that students suffer from weakness in the primary and preparatory education.
