The Education Ministry is to launch a workshop to address the myriad of inadequacies plaguing public education in Lebanon, Minister Elias Bou Saab announced Tuesday.Bou Saab said the regulation has not been implemented since 2000 .Official exams are also another point of weakness in Lebanon's education sector, Bou Saab said, adding the status of official exams was related to the curriculum issue.With regard to the official exams, the ministry faces a host of logistical problems, the minister said.Although the Grade 9 and Grade 12 official exams weren't marked due to a teacher boycott, Bou Saab said he was able to catch cheaters during visits he made to test centers.This particular aspect is vital because, according to Bou Saab, the number of Syrian refugee students in public Lebanese schools exceeds those of Lebanese students.
