Beirut Arab University adjusts its tuition fees, asks to pay part of it in fresh dollars

The price was issued, but this is not the weekly price of fuel, nor the price of generators for this month, but rather the tuition fees of Beirut Arab University in Lebanon.

It seems that education is also imported from abroad and subject to customs dollars, and it seems that the lecturer at Beirut Arab University is also made in Europe and should be paid in euros.

The Beirut Arab University has decided to amend the tuition fees, asking to pay part of these fees in fresh dollars, and the other part in Lebanese pounds with numbers and zeros greater than the enumeration of student examination marks combined.

Students raised their voice against the university, which seems to have been jealous of the money changers and owners of generators. What will the students who are receiving their income in Lebanese pounds do? Has education become like caviar affordable only for feudal families or the high-ranking state officials?

Beirut Arab University was the first to compete with the Central Bank by issuing circulars, but it will not be the last, as it seems that other universities are waiting for the courage of pioneers to join the convoy of dollarization and increase the tuition fees. The fear for the country of knowledge, Lebanon, to become a pioneer in graduating batches of uneducated youth at the rank of homelessness.
