Rabat – Minister of Education Said Amzazi has denied news reports pointing to the end of the Ministry of Education’s programme to appoint 50 heads of higher education institutions.
The Ministry of Education will continue its programme, creating 50 new prominent positions in higher education and scientific research, contrary to false news claims that the programme was set to be canceled. Minister Said Amzazi responded to the reports, calling the claims “false” and reiterating that the application is still open. Amzazi confirmed the appointment process is progressing smoothly, and higher education institutions maintain business-as-usual functioning.
Born in 1962 in Sefrou, Amzazi was appointed as Minister of Education, Vocational Training, and Scientific Research in January 2018.
He holds a PhD in biology and served as the former Dean of Faculty of Sciences in Rabat.
The Ministry of Education, under the supervision of former Minister of Education, Vocational training and Scientific Research Mohamed Hassad, previously pledged to address the lack of educators in Morocco by creating 24,000 new teaching positions throughout the ongoing 2017-2018 school year.
