Contextualizing Multilingualism in Morocco
Daniel, Mayra C.; Ball, Alexis
GIST Education and Learning Research Journal, v3 p123-133 Nov 2009
This article discusses the educational system of Morocco and the ways the country's multilingual history has influenced and continues to direct the choice of the languages used in schools. Suggestions that will eliminate cultural mismatch and thus facilitate interactions with Moroccan students and their families are included. The research focuses initially on the linguistic complexity within Morocco. The numerous languages spoken by Moroccans and the situational needs for interacting in a specific language create educational needs and everyday challenges that are prevalent in third-world countries. Educators in Morocco and other countries face similar challenges, which might delay educational progress in some countries, but appears to positively encourage Moroccans toward the lofty goal of assuring that all children receive the education needed to strengthen a country and educate its people.
