Now Lebanon - Bou Saab Refugee crisis threatening Lebanon’s education system, April 14, 2014

Education Minister Elias Abou Saab warned of the destructive repercussions the growing number of Syrian refugees in Lebanese schools could have on the country's educational system.

“If the situation remains as is, the number of Syrian students will exceed that of the Lebanese in Lebanese schools, which could lead to the collapse of the educational system in all of Lebanon,” Abou Saab said Saturday, following a meeting of the states affected by the Syrian exodus.

The minister stated that there has to be an educational plan for Lebanon, which he said would consist of “providing one hundred million dollars, then two hundred million in annual aid from donors.”
