Lebanese officials agreed Tuesday on the importance of using education as a tool to create a united Lebanon, arguing that the right schooling can improve the concept of citizenship among Lebanese, during a conference organized by the Education Ministry. Prime Minister Tammam Salam dismissed questions about the timing of the conference, which comes as the country grapples with a political and economic crisis, saying that the state of education in Lebanon could not be ignored. Although, the education sector was able to revive itself after the Civil War, Salam admitted the quality of public education is still not up to scratch.Education Minister Elias Bou Saab explained that the conference allows participants to openly and honestly exchange ideas about how to reform the education sector.
