The President met with the Jamhour School Principal, Father Charbel Bator, and discussed with him the current educational situation, and the difficulties facing this sector.

Father Bator said that he submitted a memorandum, to President Aoun, which includes a series of demands to confront this suffocating crisis which schools experience. These demands include exempting schools from measures taken by the Government in future economic plans aimed at deducting part of the sums of some depositors (Hair Cut), or obliging them to lease a portion of their funds as a contribution to some of the banks (Bail-In), in addition to exempting educational funds from fees and paying the sums due on the Lebanese state due to the half-free schools which date back to 4 years ago, and the amounts due on social security due to educational institutions, especially large amounts dating back to more than 5 years ago.

The memorandum also included the necessity of applying the full Law No.210 (of May 26, 2000), regarding the exemption of every recognized sect in Lebanon and the legal entities affiliated, from taxes and fees, in addition to exempting schools from municipal fees and securing loans to private schools through the Central Bank with zero interest. This aims to the facilitation of salary-paying for employees, in case students’ families cannot afford school fees.​
