After eight months of delay, the Board of Directors of the compensation fund of the educational staff in private schools, at its meeting yesterday, the families of compensation and pensions for retirees or retirees, which were reserved because of disagreement with school administrations on the implementation of the law series and salaries. The Fund will proceed directly to payment of receivables on a string-only basis, with a dispute being linked to the six special grades.
On a parallel line, parents committees continued their confrontations with the administrations against the backdrop of imposing increases on school fees in exchange for the application of the law of the chain. One of the equations that led to the negotiations was that «the teacher makes the contract with the school and not with the students and their parents». Each time the committees stressed that the administration can not invoke the financial deficit and inability to pay the series and six grades of the exceptional teachers as long as the parents only give the three sheets of the budget and ask them to sign "blank" without providing them with documents and invoices that prove this claim .
However, some committees have recently concluded agreements that ended strikes for teachers, as happened at the National Evangelical School in Nabatiyeh, where students returned to their seats two weeks after the forced suspension. The agreement guarantees that the parents will pay 250,000 pounds for every student, as an advance, to cover the increase in salaries of teachers without the six grades. The signing of the budget will remain frozen until the decision is reached in the educational arbitration council that is not currently formed. The administration has promised to compensate students for what they missed during the holidays, including the election holiday. It is noteworthy that the Parents Committee obtained early March, a decision by the judge of urgent matters in Nabatieh Ahmed Mezher to stop the increase on school fees of 550 thousand pounds until the decision to the objection submitted to the competent authorities and the cancellation of the draft school budget for the school for violating the provisions of the law.
At the Lycee Verdun School of the French Secular Mission, the Parents' Committee pledged to take out the value of the series and only six degrees of the judiciary, which froze the increase and paid the teachers without agreeing to sign the budget. This initial agreement has led teachers to return from their ongoing strike since last Thursday. This agreement did not extend to all the major French lees and the rest of the lexicons in Tripoli, Nahr Ibrahim and Nabatiyeh. The teachers 'sources in the Grand Lycee say that the teachers' battle is not only their salary, which was returned to the pre-series, but also the withholding of the right to strike, by deducting his days from the salary.
