Private school installments in “Fresh Dollars”… Will education become a luxury?

“No one knows how this year passed,” this is how the students’ parents answer when asked about the school year that is about to end.. High and illegal installments “no one was able to pay” .. so that the biggest surprise was the imposition of fresh fees that are added to the amounts in pounds as installments set by some private schools for the next academic year 2022/2023!!

In short, “if there are no dollars, there is no education”… especially since the largest group of parents are public and private sector employees and those with medium or low salaries, so what about this decision that most schools will adopt? How will the people manage their affairs this year?

On the other hand, this clear legal violation takes place in the shadow of complete silence by the Ministry of Education, which clearly turns a blind eye to the performance and decisions of private school administrations.

It is not like a “trip” that the citizen can abandon due to the narrow situation… Rather, it is a disaster that will affect thousands of Lebanese homes… Shall we say goodbye to the educational sector in Lebanon, whose fate seems to be at stake today?
