Though many elements contribute to the quality of an education, there is growing concern over the high number of Lebanese teachers who are leaving the field due to a lack of financial incentives, experts said Friday, also highlighting the importance of continuous training for tutors.The Union Coordination Committee, a coalition of public and private school teachers, carried out a series of strikes and protests from 2012-14, demanding that MPs approve the bill.When capable teachers leave, their spots are filled by less-skilled individuals, who can lower the overall quality of education. Despite minimal financial incentives, Mahfoud underscored that the training of teachers and the development of their skills must continue, something the association is trying to facilitate.Dalal Moukarzel, head of the Education Department at Universite Saint-Joseph, told The Daily Star that the training of teachers must be more than superficial, and should involve follow-up with those who have attended training sessions.
