AP News |

Hundreds of teachers on temporary contracts protested Tuesday in the Moroccan capital to demand permanent employment. Protestors attempted to stage a sit-in outside the parliament and Education Ministry buildings in Rabat before police dispersed them. Several teachers were injured. Protesters want the government to end the hiring of newly graduated teachers on temporary renewable contracts. More than 50,000 have been hired under the system since 2016.
