Literacy in North Africa, can you tell me what is going on


Algeria has been independent for 51 years and still its literacy rate is very low. So what happened. we cannot blame the low rates on old illiterate grandmas/ grandpas any more, a hold over from the 11 percent illiteracy rate from the colonial days. Every student that goes through school should be “literate” by the time they are finished and if kids are not going to school there parents should be given an opportunity to change the situation. Of course some students are taken from school to help family finances but that is unacceptable and that should be remedied as soon as possible.

The question is in North Africa, Algeria Tunisia and Morocco (Libya looks to be a bit okay) is that how do you define literacy. Students in elementary schools(Let’s assume the most basic and widespread institution) have to “read” in Arabic and in French. In Arabic you have signs that show the vowels on top or bellow the consonant letters, and usually in more advanced texts/city signage) they remove the signs. So my question is how does someone with an elementary school education cope with reading in everyday life, does he spend 5 minutes on one sentence.

In review I believe that

The older generation should be taught at home or in specialized classes in order to teach them how to read and write. I think that they should be taught for the sake of honor.

At “risk” youth should be put aside one on one in order to test them and to try to figure out what level they are at and whether they should catch up to the class.

Parent should be responsible and punished if there children “skip” classes.

literacy rates in algeria is at around 70% men about 80% and women at 60%

Four Fish Algeria Morocco Tunisia Libya


Salmon,Tuna,Bass,Cod The fish we all love.

The most popular “fishs” in the sea already over fished. Wild populations of these fish are being depleted. New solutions need to be found. Should fish be hunted or should they be herded or should they be farmed.

These questions are especially important to North Africa because right now they are developing “industrial” fishing boats and they have an increased appetite for the protein and calories of fish.

In order to domesticate fish and other animals, those animals need to be

1. hardy

2. endowed with an inborn liking for man

3. comfort-loving

4. able to breed freely

5. needful of only a minimal amount of tending

yet most of these fish that we love cannot be easily farmed for one thing there mating seasons are very complex some fish will ram against the glass or not eat, there offspring are very microscopic and require rotifers to eat then Artemia “sea monkeys” when they are a little bit larger. Since most of these fish are carnivores most of them eat more than they produce by a factor of 5 to 1

Algeria Morocco Tunisia and Libya need to be mindful to not repeat others mistakes.

Do no harm, do not let bottom scrapers industrial fish to fish in their waters.

And if they want to farm fish, pick fish that are hardy and are vegetarians like asian sea bass or tilapia or Basa

just something to think about.
