The Education Sector of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) held a meeting with a team from the Ministry of National Education, Preschool and Sports in Morocco, and together they reviewed updates regarding the project on the establishment of a development model for basic education in Morocco. This project is part of the advisory services and institutional support contract between the Organization and the Ministry, in partnership with the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB).
During the meeting, which took place on Monday, March 21, 2022, at ICESCO Headquarters in Rabat, the two parties discussed mechanisms for implementing the project in line with the Ministry’s strategic orientations. They also stressed the need to provide insights on its major components, define the requirements for subject matter experts following the project’s specifications, agree on the administrative and legal procedures to be undertaken, elaborate an implementation roadmap, define the tasks and responsibilities, and coordinate the preparations of the project’s launch celebration.
The two parties emphasized the importance of this pioneering initiative that will contribute to the development of the educational system in Morocco through an innovative educational model bearing a new and comprehensive understanding of the concept of basic education. This project aligns with the strategic vision of the Ministry, which is underpinned by an endeavor to establish a new school reflecting the principles of equity, equal opportunity, and quality for all to uplift individuals and societies and contribute to sustainable development.
