Karnataka students made an appeal to the deputy chief minister and minister of higher education Dr C N Ashwath Narayan to reconsider his decision on reopening of degree colleges in the state.
A survey was conducted by the Bangalore student community recently where 15,000 parents and students across Karnataka participated. 75.33 per cent of the respondents said they prefer online classes.
The survey also showed that 57.39 per cent students prefer online classes while 29.43 per cent are neutral on their stance.
Interestingly, the survey also points out that 59.35 per cent of them believe that colleges cannot effectively follow the guidelines issued by the government and they are panicking about going back to school/college.
“There is no official order. So we wanted to find out views of parents, children on this. We are requesting the DCM to bring the student and parent lobby and discuss SOPs before its release,” said Dhruv Jatti, member of BSC to TNIE.
