Berber teaching resources in Moroccan budget for the first time
A group from Morocco’s second chamber has proposed an updated finance law to create a fund for producing audiovisual aids in the Berber language, Amazighe. So far, however, with government opposition the bill has been rejected, according to Abdelmohsin El Hassouni writing in <i>Aujourd’hui Le Maroc</i>.
The Parliamentary group is committed to carrying on campaigning for the change in the finance law, especially considering the momentum that has built up in improving the Moroccan government’s commitment to Berber language and culture. This year, Moroccan schools started teaching in Berber in certain areas and a new awareness of Berber language and culture has formed.
