Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank documents, the program objective is to support the Government of Morocco in strengthening the foundations and the environment for learning in pre-primary and basic education.

The proposed objective is expected to be achieved through a mix of institutional reforms, incentive mechanisms and specific interventions aiming at:

  1. improving school readiness,
  2. improving teaching and learning,; and
  3. enhancing system capacity and incentives to manage for results.

The proposed program is anchored in the ESV 2015-2030 and will support the Ministry of Education's Performance Plan (PdP) through its two main programs, namely program 1: Steering, Governance and Leadership strengthening and program 2: Compulsory education ensuring equity and quality.

The proposed Operation is expected to provide support to the government program with a specific focus on the following key results areas:

  1. Ensuring that more children have access to quality Early Childhood Education (ECE) so that they enter intro primary education better prepared.
  2. Ensuring that teachers adopt attitudes, behaviors and teaching practices that allow primary students to develop their potential
  3. Strengthening management capacity and accountability along the service delivery chain.
