Morocco's Schools for the Deaf

Charitable associations in Tangier, Marrakech and Fez have opened private schools for deaf children in Morocco, where the public education system is falling short of meeting their needs.
 
Though the government has integrated children with disabilities into public school classrooms for 20 years, until recently, teachers have not been trained to support deaf children.
 
Some advocates say public education designed specifically for deaf students would be preferable to private schools. New Education Ministry efforts to standardize sign language and improve literacy among deaf children are a start, they say.
