Dahiyeh schools teaching Farsi as mandatory subject

Private schools in Beirut’s southern Dahiyeh area added the Farsi language to their curriculum as a mandatory subject in addition to the Arabic language, a well-informed source told NOW.

 

The source also said that among the aforementioned schools is the Al-Bayan institute, which is affiliated with Hezbollah.

 

Students will be given the right to choose between studying French and English as a second foreign language.

 

A source at the Lebanese Education Ministry told NOW that any private school has the right to teach any language it wants.

 

“However, the public schools’ curriculum has not changed,” the source added.

 

Beirut's southern Dahiyeh suburbs are a political stronghold for Hezbollah, a Shiite party that receives financial and military backing from its ally Iran.

Students will be given the right to choose between French and English to study as a second foreign language.

    Aren't all sources supposed to be "well informed"?
