Character Education in Moroccan Business Schools: Background and Challenges
Chaoui Roqai Mehdi, Prof. Allouani Saif Allah
In Morocco, we often see headlines that abound in the daily newspapers referring to fraud, swindling, corruption, uncivism, … in all sectors without exception: medicine, justice, economy, education, security, …. As a result, Moroccans are increasingly disenchanted with the institutions on which they depend and lack confidence in them. Examples are numerous: a teacher who fails in his noble mission, a banker who mismanages our assets, a doctor who cheats in his diagnoses, a police officer who accepts bribes, a magistrate who advocates injustice, …. Despite the efforts of governments to reduce these kinds of manifestations, such problems persist. Hence the need for alternative approaches, especially in the absence of “character education” in our educational system. In this regard, this article demonstrates the need for our educational institutions to assume responsibility for character education, whose role should not be limited to training and purely technical matters.
