Parents at the French Embassy-affiliated school Grand Lycee Franco-Libanais called for a sit-in on campus for Tuesday to protest a teachers' strike that saw students out of school for almost a month.A dispute then arose in April after the school proposed to hike tuition to finance the pay raise, with the parents' committee rejecting that budget. The school responded by revoking the teachers' raise, prompting the strike. Grand Lycee Franco-Libanais was one of 65 schools that Education Minister Marwan Hamadeh referred to arbitration committees this month to look into disputes between parents and schools and study budgets as well as tuition fee increases.
