Morocco’s Ministry of National Education has announced a gradual plan to introduce the teaching of the Amazigh language in primary schools.
Starting from the 2023/2024 academic year, the Amazigh language will be taught alongside Arabic, both official languages of the country.
In a statement, the ministry said it aims to reach a 50% coverage rate of Amazigh language teaching by the 2025/2026 academic year and complete implementation by 2030.
It further noted that to ensure effective implementation, a central committee will be established to oversee the process at all levels.
It stressed that this decision aligns with the constitutional provisions and reflects the country’s commitment to promoting linguistic diversity and cultural heritage.
