Abstract:
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an approach that focuses on the beneficence of not only the shareholder, but also the stakeholder. There is also a keen focus on reserving environmental and social problems that arise in the corporation. It is newly emerging concept in Lebanon especially in the field of education. This study investigates one of the CSR policies and the implementation of its practices in private schools of Beirut. To achieve this purpose a sample of three private schools of different socioeconomic status were chosen to conduct a four-part questionnaire that covers four major aspects of CSR practices, which are philanthropic legal, ethical and environmental. The teachers and administrative personnel of each school filled the data driven from the questionnaire. Descriptive statistics were implemented to check the extent of commitment of CSR practices exhibited towards teachers, students, parents and the natural environment. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) tests were performed to check the effect of school socioeconomic status and location on CSR activities. Results showed that CSR targeting employees, parents and students are taken into consideration and applied in the chosen schools. In addition, results showed discrepancies in applying practices of CSR targeting the society and natural environment among the three schools based on school location and status. As a conclusion, the commitment to CSR practices seems to be still in its emerging phase in most schools in Beirut, and this necessitates more efforts to ensure a continuous improvement of CSR implementation in education. More ideas about the topic need to be extensively researched in Lebanon as well to ameliorate CSR Lebanese educational policies and practices.
