Lebanon's Government Exempt Public Schools Students from Fees
Lebanon's public schools will be exempted from fees starting the current school year, reported the Daily Star.
The paper said the decision came to ease the financial burden for parents during the country's economic difficulties.
Lebanon's Education Minister Mohammed Youssef Beydoun was quoted as telling reporters on Saturday that "the parents will not have to pay registration and other fees in public schools."
Although the registration fee was only LL10,000 for each student, there was also a public school development project fee which ranged between LL60,000 and LL90,000 annually, which, according to the paper, proved to be a burden on parents, especially those who had more than one child in school - Albawaba.com
