Public school contract teachers demanded that civil service exams be restricted to current instructors and that they be paid overdue wages in a protest Tuesday at Beirut's Riad al-Solh Square.Without permanent employment, those teachers who have been working in public schools for 10 years would still have nothing to show for it with regard to a pension, which has prompted many of them to oppose the idea of open exams.The second demand of the contracts teachers is for salaries that have been pending since last year.
