The project is being implemented in over 20 schools and includes both Lebanese and non-Lebanese students, general director of education at the ministry, Fady Yarak, said, noting that the feedback from the "experiments" in these schools would help amend the policy for its final version.As part of its implementation mechanism, the policy includes training sessions offered to staff and educators, to help them to spot early signs of violent outbreaks in a school environment.Speaking at the launch event, Hamadeh said the importance of the initiative, known officially as the Policy for the Protection of Students in the School Environment, lies in its implementation mechanism, which is integrated with the policy itself.The policy to protect students was developed in accordance with the national strategy to prevent violence against children, passed by Cabinet in 2012 .
