Scores of students pursuing DEd course Saturday staged a protest in the home district of Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda against the state government's move to extend the course duration from two to three years.
Under the aegis of Student Federation of India, the students tried to march towards the CM residence to hold a demonstration, but were stopped by police. Following which, they staged a protest outside the SP's residence here.
"By introducing an internship programme in the final year, the state government has extended the D.Ed course duration from two to three years," the students said.
"A 180-day intern-ship made mandatory for every student of DEd course is totally unjustified and it will reduce the job opportunities for the degree holders," students said.
Protesters submitted a memorandum to the CM through district authorities wherein they have demanded withdrawal of internship from the DEd course.
