Démocratisation de l’éducation et inégalités scolaires au Maroc
[Democratization of education and educational inequality in Morocco]


  • Liouaeddine, Mariem


This article aims to highlight first, the concept of educational democratization. Then it assesses the type of educational democratization achieved in Morocco through the analysis of the evolution of the specific enrollment rate. This indicator shows that the democratization of education is quantitative, qualitative and almost equalized in primary school, uniform in the secondary level and segregated in the high school level.
