School teachers ruled out any compromise to allow the grading of official exams to go forward Sunday, rejecting growing pressure from politicians to end their ongoing boycott of the process.The statement pointed out that the UCC's boycott was not spontaneous, but followed three years of relying on democratic procedures to settle the salary scale.Education Minister Elias Bou Saab Friday gave protesting teachers one last chance to grade official examinations or risk losing a key negotiating card, saying he would issue certificates of passing to all students.At a news conference after meeting members of the UCC, Bou Saab said he would give the order to issue the passing certificates and called for the grading committee to begin correcting exams by Monday.
