The government and education unions reached a deal on significant changes for employees of the education sector on Monday, thus concluding the series of meetings aimed at amending the Fundamental System.

Chakib Benmoussa, the minister of education,  reported that after several meetings, the government committee and education unions agreed on essential changes. The details of these meetings will be part of an agreement to be signed Today.

Representatives from five major education unions spoke positively about the discussions, stating that this agreement, set to be signed today, will make a big difference, bringing a positive change to public schools and getting students back into classrooms.

This agreement builds upon a prior one signed on December 10, aiming to increase teachers’ income by MAD 1500, distributed across two installments spanning two years.

Key points from Monday’s meeting include granting two years of seniority for educational administrators in the 2020/2022 batches, considering them akin to the 2018 batch, and granting an extra year of seniority for the 2023 batch, as if they were associated with the 2022 batch.

The roles of supervisors and administrators will be removed, and specialists will take on management tasks.

Regarding “Cell 10,” which refers to teachers who have maintained their position in echelon 10 since the 1990s, the government granted them seniority of 5 years instead of 4. While teachers from the batches of 93/94/95/96/97/98 will retain their seniority as they progress to the next echelon.

There’s a MAD 300 increase for planning and guidance counselors and a unique integration into higher positions starting January 1, 2024.

This integration will happen in five phases, covering graduates from 2005 to 2024. Those integrated will have a three-month distance learning program, followed by a report on their training. After this, they’ll be placed in the directorates where they worked during their integration season.

These changes have stirred frustration among teachers, who expressed discontent with the government’s decision to address the requests of non-protesting employees in the education sector while overlooking the significant and pressing demands put forth by teachers.

Operating within approximately 25 coordinations, teachers have rejected what they perceive as inadequate resolutions to protests that have persisted for three months. They’re calling for the continuation of strikes and protests, citing disappointment with the outcomes of meetings with the unions.
