Morocco: Secondary Education Activity for Employability Project

2016-2023
Prepared For

Millennium Challenge Corporation

Morocco’s consistent economic and political stability has contributed to continuous economic growth and significant poverty reduction over the past decade. Although poverty trends are improving, regional inequality is considerable, with an urban/rural divide in access to public services and economic opportunities.

The Millennium Challenge Corporation and the Government of Morocco signed a second compact in November 2015 to improve economic growth through policy and institutional advancements that address issues related to supply and demand in the labor market. The compact funds two projects, focused on improving secondary education and workforce development. Mathematica is conducting a performance evaluation and an impact evaluation of the Secondary Education Activity. This activity seeks to improve the quality of education to bolster the employability prospects of graduates, giving them skills aligned with the requirements of the modern workforce, and in turn, improving the overall economic growth of the country.
