Ministry of Education cancels degrees for Doojoon, Junhyung, Kikwang, Hyunseung, Sungjae, Eunkwang, and Choo Ga Yeol

AKP STAFF

Dongshin University has been found guilty of giving preferential treatment to Highlight's KikwangJunhyungDoojoonB2ST's HyunseungBTOB's EunkwangSungjae, and folk singer Choo Ga Yeol

The Ministry of Education held their hearing on Dongshin University and Busan Kyungsang University on the 14th. During the hearing, Dongshin University admitted that the celebrity students were marked present even though they were not in class by taking in broadcast activities as attendance. However, there were no protocols for such before 2015, or any regulations that students could take attendance some other way. The Ministry of Education decided that their attendance could not be accepted.

Choo Ga Yeol especially was lecturing as a professor even though he did not have a graduate degree. His time on supposedly attending class lectures overlapped with his lecturing schedule, and he could not have been in class. He will not only lose his degree, but also his status as a professor. 

The Ministry of education has decided to cancel the degrees of all 7 students. The university itself has been required to serve severe penalties to 1 student, mild penalties to 9 students, and warnings to 6 students.

Yet the standards have changed and now many of their broadcast activities can count towards attendance depending on their degree plan. Attendance is ridiculous anyways for most degrees. Unless you are getting a medical, legal, or science based degree that requires hands on labs there is no real need to be physically present as long as you log your online class discussion hours and participate in discussion boards plus do the proctored testing. It's accepted for many degrees from thousands of colleges and universities all over the world. First world countries need to stop making higher education so difficult to obtain. It creates a wealth barrier so that poor students have to maintain jobs while also attending school AND maintaining excellent grades to keep or obtain financial aid. It's a lot easier to ear college credit if you can do online for some of the classes.

It is better to take action to the managements of the universities, not to the artists. Why did MOE treat the students & spoiled the images of the artists.
