Great attention has to be paid to education and learning, as well as good morals, and nobody is more suited to assist in this process than the humble teacher. Without teachers, both knowledge and morals would suffer. Developing ones are beginning to understand that to stay on top in the global economy; they need to place more and more emphasis on developing and retaining their people.
Morocco has already launched programs aiming at strengthening the Moroccan human capital but it seems that was a merely propaganda. Beating and suppressing young Moroccan teachers in public proves that the human capital is totally neglected. I can even say it makes. What add insult to injury is that those teachers protesting for five weeks are BA and MA holders who ask for their legal right to get promoted like the previous and the forthcoming promotions. How could a nation that respects human rights and cares about human capital to treat teachers so callously.
6000 Moroccan teachers have been protesting peacefully for more than forty days in streets of Rabat. In an unprecedented step in the history of education in the world teachers are going on hunger-strike spending nights in streets without shelter. Those teachers, who are said to play a cardinal role in the building up of the character of the next generation, are facing the threat of expulsion and beaten for no reason , just because they protested peacefully to get their legal rights in getting promoted like the previous and forthcoming promotions. Crashing teachers’ heads and legs and depriving them for the legal right of going on strike rings danger bells. More than forty teachers were arrested and still followed judicially.
A nation is built by its citizens, citizens are molded by teachers. Chanakya has rightly stated, “Teacher is the maker of nation.” The teacher can be rightly called a nation builder. While the role of a skilled society with visions and aspirations in contributing in the development of a prosperous and successful nation. it should also be remembered that knowledge cannot be acquired if it is not sought and received through the help of the teacher. This is why everyone should put efforts into appreciating the teacher’s importance in guiding us and the generations to come, to become knowledgeable and morally upright people .Knowledge received without a teacher’s guidance can be compared to a blind man walking without his stick.
Throughout the years many programs were launched to strengthen and improve the Moroccan educational system. But beating, and humiliating peaceful teachers, who are the representatives of the society who inculcate moral precepts, proves that all the programs launched are just ink on papers. Depriving teachers from the right to pursue their university studies, under paying them, and breaking their heads savagely are all signs that the Moroccan human capital is so cheap in the eyes of the Islamic government.
