Nearly five hundreds students and one hundred and thirty teachers from different parts of Morocco have met in Rabat, the country’s capital, for the last three days in a first of its kind initiative organized by the `L’Observatoire Nationale des Droits de l’Enfant’ and the “Club of Ancient Members of the Child’s Parliament.” The event was held under the patronage of HH Princess Lala Meryem.
The initiative’s objective is to help learners described as “low achievers” to reach the level of their colleagues who perform well at school and to provide all students and children with equal opportunities to have access to the source of knowledge and learning.
For three days, these teachers coming from all regions of the kingdom had special meetings with the students and listened to their needs and concerns in an attempt to identify the main causes of students’ lack of motivation and causes for why they neglect their studies and poorly perform at school so as to find solutions through a new approach that involves the students.
According to Dr. Mustapha Danial ,the director of the `Observatoire National du droits d L `Enfant” this project targets all Moroccan students and it will be expanded to all Moroccan regions, especially remote areas in order to help them continue their studies along with spreading the culture of human rights and the values of tolerance, love, respect and citizenship.
All the participants welcomed and commended this initiative that gathered teachers and students of the kingdom to discuss the issue of education and knowledge.
‘ Teachers should be involved in all attempts of social and educational change so as to build a Morocco that is proud of its teachers and children and to revive the values of Moroccan culture which respect teachers and men and women of education”, Dr.Danial added to MWN.
The Organizers want the seed of this national project to be watered locally and nationally so as to reach all Moroccan children and to tackle their concerns, especially in the field of the press, mental health, and moral and civic values.
