NNA - President of the Republic Michel Aoun disclosed Saturday that he has agreed with Prime Minister Saad Hariri to hold an extraordinary cabinet session, in coordination with Higher Education Minister Marwan Hamadeh, to look into the increase in school tuition and teachers' salaries.

President Aoun assured members of the Parents Committees' delegation, who visited him at Baabda Palace today, that he is closely following-up on the circumstances which accompanied the wage grid endorsement and its impact on the educational sector.

The delegation, in turn, handed the President a memorandum focusing on "the repercussions of increasing school fees on the educational sector in Lebanon", which included a series of demands to find a solution to the current crisis.
