BEIRUT: Former president of Lebanon's private school teachers' union Nehme Mahfoud Tuesday warned that education in the country would be threatened unless the salary scale was applied to private schools teachers.

During a union press conference, Mahfoud called on Education Minister Marwan Hamadeh to "intervene to resolve the issue" by "giving the professors their rights and paying compensation to retirees."

Mahfoud claimed that the salary scale, endorsed by Parliament in July 2017, must be implemented in the private school sector as the law and common practice dictates.

Lebanon's private school teachers' union recently organized several demonstrations over failure to increase wages.
