The Union Coordination Committee announced after a long meeting Tuesday that it would commit to its decision to boycott correcting the official exams, blaming the "political class" for giving students the controversial passing certificates.Parliament's Education Committee had recommended earlier in the day that lawmakers draft a law to legalize the passing certificates issued by the Education Ministry, stressing that the decision to issue the certificates was final regardless of any change of heart by teachers boycotting the correction of exams.Although the committee's members expressed support for the discussion and passing of the wage hike in the next Parliament session, they backed Education Minister Elias Bou Saab's insistence on issuing passing certificates for all Grade 9 and 12 students who sat for official exams.However, the education minister's decision to give passing certificates to all Grade 12 students means that even those who might have failed the official exams will be eligible for admission, making it necessary to filter the numbers, especially for LU.
