Teachers Band Together for Four-Day Strike Across Morocco

Rabat – The unified coordination of teaching staff across Morocco has declared a nationwide four-day strike beginning Monday, November 13, and continuing through Thursday, November 16.

The escalation plan includes organized demonstrations outside regional education offices and academies on Wednesday morning, November 15.

Teacher unions are urging all coordination groups and individual educators to support their demands, particularly the withdrawal of the controversial fundamental education system imposed by the government. They are also seeking backing to defend public schools against privatization efforts and limits on linguistic choices in the classroom.

Expressing dismay at the government’s “participatory approach,” the unions criticize recent decisions, which they say stem from media-driven confusion and arbitrary ruling rather than meaningful engagement with teachers. This includes the dismissal of demands to repeal the basic education system that teachers view as unjust.

The four-day walkout stands in contrast to the shorter strike called by the National Coordination of Educational Workers from November 13-15, which coincides with the protest organized by the National Coordination of Professors and Support Frameworks. The National Education Union has limited its job action to just November 15-16.

The united front of an extended strike signals mounting frustration among the country’s teachers and their resolve to push back against policies seen as detrimental to public education. With demonstrations planned across Morocco, the action threatens major disruptions to schooling as teachers bring their demands to the streets.
