Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi sounded the alarm over a looming education crisis following the wage increase of Lebanon's private school teachers, as he called for devising plans that make Lebanese youth dismiss thoughts of emigration, the National News Agency reported on Thursday.
The Patriarch also voiced calls for devising a “strategic plan to protect the Lebanese people from the ailing economic and livelihood conditions.”
Rahi’s remarks came during his meeting with the Maronites institutions held in Bkirki.
“Our people suffer from unemployment, poverty and deprivation. Our youth are leaving Lebanon to countries that have respect for the human, allow them to achieve, and appreciate their potentials,” said Rahi.
Adding, that an “economic plan must be devised to secure growth and eradicate corruption and looting of public funds.”
