A special Cabinet session to tackle key education issues in Lebanon will be held soon, President Michel Aoun announced over the weekend. Aoun informed a delegation of parents' committees in private schools Saturday that he had agreed with Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Education Minister Marwan Hamadeh to hold an exceptional Cabinet session on education.The president has been deliberating over various suggestions, including distributing the incurred burden on government, schools, teachers and parents.Many parents whose children are in private schools have refused to pay for any increase in tuition to cover additions to the teachers' salaries, saying the burden of this should fall on the administrations only.The mandated salary hikes have reportedly led some administrations to call for an up to 30 percent increase in school tuition fees in order to fund the new wages.
