Dr Mostari
I share your views. Indeed it is difficult to generalise Amazigh-in-education in all the regions of Algeria. As you also rightly say, motivation is the key factor. But I personally believe that what actually lacks is some political motivation for a genuine multilingual and multicultural Algeria. Language decisions in Algeria have always been in the hands of non-academics and non-experts. One idea for instance is to have a language policy centre in Algeria, whose task would be to conduct research in the field and to work as a consulting/advisory body to the parliament and government. Or is it too much to ask? I am personally prepared to give some of my time to set up this project.

Dear Dr Fouzi, 


Being an Algerian linguist , it is very difficult to imagine the spread of Tamazight in non berberophone areas because it will be just a dead language in these areas where none will be really motivated to learn a language that he will not use . Also , because of 'regionalism', the Berber culture is not welcomed everywhere in Algeria . So, let' s keep feet on earth'

Dear all
According to the Minister of Education, Berber (Amazigh) language will be generalised throughout the educational system in Algeria. Good news to hear!!! But: to what extent and how is this achievable?  
 
Fouzi
 
«L'enseignement de tamazight sera généralisé graduellement»
«Le ministère de l'Education est prêt à mettre tous les moyens matériels, humains et financiers pour la promotion de la langue tamazight et la généralisation de son enseignement à l'échelle nationale.  Tamazight est une langue nationale et nous allons consentir davantage d'efforts pour sa promotion», a déclaré le ministre de l'Education, lors de la visite de travail qu'il a effectuée   hier matin dans la ville de Tizi Ouzou. 
En effet, si l'enseignement de tamazight progresse chaque année à Tizi Ouzou, puisque environ 60% des élèves des trois paliers bénéficient de son enseignement, ce n'est guère le cas pour les autres régions du pays. La langue de Massinissa n'est enseignée, en fait, que dans 13 wilayas.  Pis, le nombre d'établissements scolaires qui assurent l'enseignement de cette langue se rétrécit,  telle une peau de chagrin au niveau de certaines wilayas, telle que Tamanrasset, Alger, Ghardaïa, Khenchela. 
Une situation que les militants de la cause amazighe ne cessent de dénoncer. «L'enseignement de la  langue tamazight sera généralisé l'année prochaine à Tizi Ouizou en attendant le reste des autres wilayas du pays», tente de rassurer le ministre, en se voulant optimiste.
