Regarding today’s articles calling for the dismissal of teachers from their teaching assignments.

Uppsala union of engineering and science students does not wish to comment on the subjects brought up in today’s articles, but believe it is irresponsible to suspend university staff from their teaching assignments without a specified plan for managing the continued course structure.
