Due to the Corona Virus spreading globally, it is impacting the education system. Colleges/Universities are being forced to move all classes online or suspended the entire semester. This means that students that paid for classes on campus will have to suffer dealing with the virtual version. This is not fair to the majority of students because their academic performance will be affected greatly. Most students perform better in a classroom rather than online because you’re engaging with your professor and interacting with other students to become more informed about your studies. Also, graduation ceremonies are either being postponed or canceled and some don’t have the best living conditions or sufficient resources to keep up with online work. What happens to those students who need those two extra classes but are forced to move online where their performance may be below the average level? To solve this, URI should pass all of their students for the spring semester instead of forcing all of them to go online. Some classes are not easy to comprehend through a software. For example: Engineering, Chemistry, Criminal Justice, Nursing, Business, Biology. These courses come with labs. You have to be hands-on in the lab to understand what is going on. Please help URI students by signing this petition.
