From this year, the internship had been made compulsory from the 3rd year of the course.
Previously, D.Ed students were not subject to such a compulsory internship.
“The students have to complete an 80-day teaching practical, which is a part of the programme. Introducing a separate internship period is not required,” added Bharadwaj.
Meanwhile, the students will stage a protest outside the residence of Haryana education minister Geeta Bhukkal at Jhajjar on December 19.
