Language Debates And The Changing Context Of Educational Policy In Morocco, Taoufik Jaafari

Journal of Global Initiatives: Policy, Pedagogy, Perspective

Language is a critical basis of local identity and a vital tool for global communication. In multilingual Morocco, the issue of language instruction has been highly politicized, a factor that has contributed to poor educational practice. This article aims at providing a brief description of Morocco’s linguistic landscape together with the language policies first established in Morocco by the French colonizer. It goes on to further assess the evolution of language education policy and makes recommendations for strengthening Morocco’s multilingualism.
