Fez - It has been two months now since teacher trainees in Morocco started their boycott of training classes in the diverse regional training centers across Morocco in protest against the ministerial decrees N: 588-15-2 and N: 589-15-2 which separate training from recruitment, and reduce the training scholarship by half. The sit-ins in Rabat just a few meters from the Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training and the high-pitched voices of trainees were received with closed windows, locked doors and allegedly a lot of violence against Morocco’s future educators.
