Here, in the country of Uncle Sam, where the perspective of civilization is very prominent, you can see the distinction of human development clearly. The educational system is one of the more developed sectors that prosperity is based on. Governments try to ensure a suitable environment for students to be successful such as providing technology, high quality staff members, facilities and instructional materials. Now is the time of summer vacation for students, but where do students go and what do they do during this summer break? Well, here students are busy with summer homework, summer camps and summer jobs. They have a lot to do. Summer time is an opportunity for students to enrich their skills and polish them. Libraries are very busy with a mass of students searching for books that are on their reading lists. Camps offer such entertainment for students as arts, sports, technology and science. As result, kids continue to learn and exploit summer time for their benefit.
On the other hand, our students in Morocco are losing themselves during summer time. The government does not care anymore to promote the skills of our kids. Our educational system is underdeveloped. Neither students nor teachers seem to care to make the most of their time during summer to enhance educational performance. Moroccan students are lazing around in the streets, running and playing rather than reading a book or learning new skills. Teachers spend their summers in cafes and gossiping rather than participating in some kind of professional development that could improve their teaching skills. Why has the government not built any libraries? Where are summer camps that won’t bankrupt the parents? How are our kids supposed to succeed if we do not ensure essential measures are taken to make our students successful?
No wonder Morocco is rated very low on education. Neither the government nor teachers are attempting to find a solution to this crisis. Everyone, no matter his position, is responsible for these students. We are very good at complaining, but no one is active in brainstorming ideas for increasing achievement. Our underdevelopment is from our own hands and failed policies. We have been falling down the cliff and have rolled far beyond it; it seems no one wants to find the way back up. The question here is, who benefits from this current situation? Until we find a unique answer, there will be many unconvincing excuses given by all parties involved.
