4·10 Rally, a movement to seek students’ educational rights, was held on April 10 at the People’s Square. The Korea University Student Union (KUSU) chose three main educational issues on campus as main agendas of this year’s rally: increase in the number of courses, removal of a classical Chinese test from graduation requirements, and improvement of laboratory facilities.
KUSU had been recruiting members for the task forces (TF) of the three main agendas. Each representative from the TFs took turn to voice their opinion about the educational issues. President of the student union of School of Media and Communication student union pointed out the decrease in the total number of courses, mentioning that there will be a meeting about the matter with KU’s faculty before the mid-term examination. Moreover, a representative from the student union of Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering revealed the poor laboratory conditions. Lastly, question on the effectiveness of the classical Chinese test was raised.
The event ended with students marching towards the Main Hall. Overall, 4·10 Rally was held successfully despite the harsh weather condition.
