President Michel Aoun said Tuesday that a "radical" approach was necessary to resolve the issue of salaries and compensation for private school teachers, suggesting that the state could pay private school teachers' salaries if the schools abide by certain regulations.The salary scale applies specifically to public institutions, and has prompted private school teachers to demand the increase as well, as common practice dictates that an increase in public school teachers' wages would typically be reflected in the private sphere.Aoun said that one solution being considered is that the state would pay private school teachers' salaries on the condition that the schools maintain rules and regulations established by the state, and that school fees are determined based on budgets that are subject to the supervision of the Education Ministry.
