Geagea Urges Govt. to Rescue Crisis-Hit Private Schools
Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Monday urged the government to assist Lebanon's private schools amid the unprecedented economic and financial crisis in the country.
“Private schools have accompanied Lebanon since its independence and have been one of its remarkable characteristics, that's why the government should not let them collapse under the impact of the current severe financial and economic crisis,” Geagea tweeted.
Calling on the government to “offer urgent assistance” to private schools to “maintain their continuity,” the LF leader warned that the collapse of private schools would oblige the state to “pay double the amount and more to accommodate the students of private schools in public schools.”
