The Zibdin Public Middle School celebrated Monday becoming the first school in the south to sign off on a project, led by the non-governmental organization Beyond, to teach students with physical disabilities alongside other children.Taleb was one of four blind children brought into the school this year, and in September, he will be joined by a number of other kids with various disabilities, after the school was equipped with special rails, elevators and bathrooms suitable for wheelchairs. Beyond's Executive Director Maria Assi noted that this was the first attempt to integrate students with disabilities into public education in Lebanon, as normally the schools are not suitably equipped.
