IJT asks HEC to revisit decision of online classes
CHARSADDA: President, Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Shakeel Ahmad has demanded the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan to reverse its decision of starting online classes at universities.
In a press statement issued on Monday, he said that students were worried about the decision of online teaching as a big number of students hail from the newly merged tribal districts and they didn’t have access to internet, so how they would manage it to continue their education amid the prevailing situation?
He also expressed concern over the demand of tuition fee from the students by their universities, adding that instead of asking for tuition fee, the universities should waive off the fee as all the businesses and jobs were adversely affected due to Corona crisis.
He urged the government and the authorities concerned that if the decision of starting online classes was final, then high speed internet facility should be provided to all the students, especially to the students of ex-FATA enabling them to achieve the desired goals.
