Agadir – The Regional Academies of Education refused to grant teachers who passed the written entrance exam the permit to sit for the oral exam for teaching profession.
Around 60 teachers took part in a sit-in at Souss Massa Draa Academy Monday evening, protesting against what they described as the “irresponsibility” of the Ministry of Education.
“How come we passed the written exam to become high school teachers, then in a blink of an eye, we are denied the permit to sit for the oral exam, ” Khalid Nejjar, a teacher of French, told MWN.
MWN attended the sit-in and talked to some of the teachers who rejected the decision and the reasons lying behind it.
“It is sheer folly. The Academy is fooling us. What’s the use of sitting for the entrance exam, succeeding at it, and then not being allowed to take the oral exam? ” Mohamed Aassli, a primary school teacher, told MWN.
“We are told to by the Academy officials to go back home and wait for the permit. We cannot trust Moroccan administration. We want our permit the soonest possible. We still need to submit the file for the oral exam by Friday November 8,” Several teachers at the sit-in told MWN.
According to the heads of the Academies, the decision to delay granting the permit was made by the Ministry of Education.
“If we are not entitled to this right, why were we allowed to sit for the written exam and type button ” Employee of Ministry ” when we applied?” Said Hmazaoui, a teacher of Geography, told MWN.
MWN contacted the head of human resources department at the academy, who is in charge of granting such permits.
“My job is to verify eligibility for the permits. I just apply orders. I am not a decision-maker. It is the head of the academy who signs at the end of the day,” head of human resources department told MWN on the condition of anonymity.
“We know Moroccan administration. We trust only signed papers. No need for promises. They are liars. We will not give up the right to take the exam until we are granted our confiscated right”, several teachers inside the academy told MWN.
So far, the Ministry of Education has not released any communiqué.
“The Ministry will end up facing a contradiction. How come it allowed its employees to sit for the exam, and now it has annulled their success, ” Hamid Aabdi, a teacher of primary school teacher, from TinghUir told MWN.
It is worth mentioning that the results of the written entrance exams to the teaching profession were released on Saturday.
According to the Ministry, the oral exam will take place after the successful applicants complete their applications files by Friday November 8.
Unlike other applicants, the employees of the Ministry of education are obliged to submit the permit to complete their files.
So far, no permit has been granted.
