“I said I would solve it if I told it… but after the accident happened, the stairs were repaired and the construction was generally carried out.”
Students burst into anger at the ‘backbook measures’.
This is because not only has the campus media publicized the dangers of slopes since five years ago, but also the school’s complacent attitude toward old facilities on campus was pointed out at a meeting between the president and the student council last year.
In the stenographic record of the meeting at the time, it was written that ‘I want you to be alert to the old facilities’ and ‘you need to check in advance and prevent’.

“Who would have thought that there would be deaths due to safety accidents at schools? All of this is the responsibility of President Myung-ae Kim and Chairman Cho Won-yeong. They said that they would come up with safety measures only after losing the lives of precious students.. “
As the students’ backlash grew, the president met with the student council for the first time 10 days after the accident today.
The Student Council has repeatedly urged the president’s resignation along with safety measures.
However, President Myung-ae Kim avoided an immediate answer on whether to resign, and the students plan to continue the sit-in until President Kim resigns.
