$5 shuts down public schools

A full week has passed since the strike announced by the active committee in public schools in response to the insult directed by the caretaker Minister of Education, Abbas al-Halabi, to teachers by making incentives for their educational day at $5, which announced last Monday the “Teacher’s Dignity Day in Lebanon” and it will continue with a strike until Payment of rights.

Hundreds of teachers live in poor conditions, as they are the most affected by the crisis. They are obliged to attend schools daily, as education is not subject to rotation.

The most important question that arises is whether there are escalatory steps, what is the fate of the students, especially those who are facing the eligibility for the official certificate exams?
So, the school year is at stake, as it is the one that entered the tunnel of strikes and it will be followed by subsequent crises, and the student remains the “scapegoat” as he is the only one who will pay the price because he pays the price of the government’s failure to manage and support public schools.
