Is the scholar year in danger?

Certainly, the educational crisis cannot be separated from the economic crisis, and all educational problems can be summed up by the word “financing”, and if there are funds to feed the school funds, the crisis will end.

The beginning of the year 2023 may witness strikes by teachers in public and private schools. After the public sector teachers cried and threatened to strike, the private sector teachers issued an ultimatum, as the completion of the academic year now requires the minimum necessities for life, as the salaries that teachers receive have lost much of their value due to the economic crisis.

The head of the Teachers Syndicate in Private Schools, Nehme Mahfoud, set a deadline that ends on the eighth of January. Is there a response to the demands of the teachers?

Will all schools be involved in the decision to be made? Which are the big schools too, or just the middle and small schools?

This reality will be reflected in judgment on the quality of education, so how can a teacher give of his time and effort when he is unable to support himself? Likewise, parents who bear great burdens and are unable to pay school fees amid difficulties in securing their basic life needs. As for the disciple, he is the “ram of the ram”, and his future is in danger. Will the school year be saved before it is too late?
