"Skool’s Out"

The City International School in Beirut let preschoolers out one week early, at the request of parents who had made sudden travel arrangements for the summer or were leaving the country permanently due to the political uncertainty, said one administrator on condition of anonymity. The school is popular with expatriate families.

One 17-year-old boy rolled his eyes when asked why school was out early this summer. “Because of the weather,” he said, then added: “Why do you think? It’s the political situation.”
