Workshop on the privatisation of education in Morocco
From 7-8 March, a workshop was held in Casablanca, during which EI’s member organisations, i.e. the Syndicat National de l'Enseignement-Confédération Démocratique du Travail(SNE-CDT), the Syndicat National de l'Enseignement-Fédération Démocratique du Travail (SNE-FDT) and the Syndicat National de l'Enseignement Supérieur(SNESup), shared the nature of their struggle against privatisation and the continuing attacks on public education and the profession. In turn, the participants were informed about the Global Response campaign’s work. The event culminated in the unveiling of the Casablanca Declaration, which calls on the government of Morocco to reject the injunctions of international financial institutions and fulfill its obligation to ensure quality free public education consistent with SDG 4. The unions have also declared their intention to intensify their united struggle against privatisation.
