Bangalore University’s grandiose proposal to teach civic sense to 19-year olds has fallen flat. The varsity mooted the proposal so late that colleges found it impossible to commence the course, which was to be introduced for all undergraduate programmes in BU-affiliated colleges. Following strong opposition from teachers of the affiliated colleges of Bangalore University, the varsity might now rethink on introducing the subject this year.
The Bangalore University Teachers Association and Bangalore University First Grade Colleges Principals Association on Monday, 13th August, 2012 submitted a memorandum asking them to reconsider the implementation this year. The communication to start the course came very late to us. It has been two months since classes have begun. Completing the portions in the next one-and-a-half months is almost impossible. In a college with 6-7 sections, we need at least two full-time lecturers. It’s not possible to find lecturers for that, said BS Srikantha, president of the principals association.
Apart from these technical issues, teachers are also not happy about the idea of introducing the subject in an undergraduate programme. It’s a subject that needs to be taught in primary classes and not when students are 18 years and above. It teaches students against spitting and urinating in public, he added. Introducing the subject was the VCs idea. We will rethink about introducing it this year. The decision will have to be taken by the syndicate, said BC Mylarappa, registrar, BU.
