Lebanon's education framework should focus on real-life skills sought by employers, reduce the gap between top and bottom performers and better integrate refugees, a World Bank report released in Cairo Thursday suggests.Lebanon tops the ranks for a variety of criteria identified by World Bank experts as drivers of successful education, including teachers' autonomy in picking course material or enrolment in preprimary education.The 65-page report makes it clear Lebanon's education system is prone to an overemphasis on lesson memorization, and provides insufficient provisions to students coming from economically and socially disadvantaged households.While the number of refugee students in Lebanon is the highest in the Middle East, the country also fails to enroll the most Syrian refugees who are school-age children: 43 percent, compared to 35 percent in Turkey and 31 in Jordan.
