1 - Children reciting from the Qur'an at an unidentified mosque school in El Ksiba, in the Middle Atlas Mountains. Before the colonial period, religious schools were the main source of primary education in Morocco, and remain important in teaching basic literacy in Arabic, especially in remote areas. Students learn by memorization and mass recitation (in the rythmic cadence heard here) of surat (chapters) of the Qur'an.
