Postsecondary students debate positives, negatives of continuing online education

January 15, 2021
Postsecondary students in Ontario are debating whether to pursue postsecondary education in Fall 2021 if online education continues. The Times Colonist explains that some students feel that they will not be able to make the most out of their postsecondary experiences. “My third year was supposed to be the most hands-on experience time I would get in my program, and that was a huge reason I came to this school and did this program,” said Queen’s University student Josephine DiMaurizio. The pandemic has also encouraged some who lost employment to pursue education. Rajat Ram, who had worked in the hospitality industry prior to the pandemic, explains that his job loss prompted him to pursue a course at George Brown College. Times Colonist (National)
