New Increase in Tuition Fees at Private Schools in Morocco: Calls for Price Regulation

Rabat, May 22, 2024: Moroccan newspaper “Assabah” has revealed a new increase in tuition fees at private schools in Morocco, with expectations for the next academic year to witness an increase of between 200 and 300 dirhams in these fees.

The newspaper explained that the administrations of the schools concerned have already informed parents of this new increase, which has sparked a wave of resentment among them.

This increase comes as an annual phenomenon that private schools in Morocco have become accustomed to, where they raise tuition fees every year, which angers parents who see these increases as an additional burden on their budgets.

Many parents have expressed their rejection of these increases, considering them illegal, and demanded that the Ministry of National Education intervene to control prices and prevent these practices.

In this context, parents’ associations called on the Ministry of National Education, headed by Mr. Chakib Benmoussa, to assume its responsibilities and work to regulate the prices of private schools, and to limit these repeated increases that burden Moroccan families.

This issue is a test of the Ministry of National Education’s ability to regulate the work of private schools and ensure that all students have access to quality education at reasonable prices.
