Notes
  • Actually, education in Morocco is totally free, from kindergarden to university. After graduating from high school, one can choose to study in a privite sector, but it's rare. Private schools get usually students who didn't get good marks in Baccalureat and just passed with an average. Furthermore, 90% of girls go to school, and primary education is obligatory.
    Also, the most popular music is not berbar, it's Andalusian, Malehoun. (it was the music created by Arabs who were leaving in Spain (it was called Andalous), and after they came to Morocco when defeated by Europeans, they brang it with them.
    Thanks for your effort in introducing our country. I'll be glad to help you know more about if you want.
