This report compiled by the GI-ESCR and a coalition of Moroccan organisations on privatisation in education in Morocco was submitted to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) in early February 2015. The report builds on previous research presented to the UN committee on the rights of the child (CRC), and adds critical new elements to the analysis of the impact of privatisation on the right to education in Morocco. The submission comes at a critical time, as the Government of Morocco recently announced plans to reform the education system that includes further supporting private education, with a target of 20% of children in private schools by 2018 (it was 3% in 2000, 13% at the moment), and, crucially, the development of public-private partnership model in education.
