Bou Saab during press conference: No school can operate without license or exceptional approval


NNA – National Education and Higher Education Elias Bou Saab fervently stressed that no school in Lebanon can operate at the onset of the current school year without having a prior decree/license or an exceptional approval.

Minister Bou Saab’s fresh words on Thursday came during a press conference at his ministerial office, whereby he dwelt on an array of educational matters at the onset of the new school year, attended by scores of educational and senior academic figures.

Bou Saab said that a list of the licensed schools across Lebanon shall be published at the onset of upcoming week, saying that he has addressed a memo to the Interior Minister to close down unlicensed schools.

“Our position is utterly educational away from politics,” Bou Saab stressed, underlining that he shall not accept chaos in this sector.

Turning to the political issue and in reply to a question by media representatives, Bou Saab stressed the importance of true partnership in the country, saying they shall not accept the adoption of governmental decisions in their absence.
