A Conversation with York Teaching Assistant Fired for Giving ''atypical'' Grades

Tasia Alexopoulos was fired from her teaching assistant position at York University when she gave ''atypical'' grades (read, too many good grades!)

Not only was she fired from teaching, she was told not to have contact with undergraduate students!

A dangerous T.A. or a smart doctoral student? Judge for yourself! The Train interviewed her on February 11, 2010.

TA stands for Tasia Alexopoulos


  1. Holy lord. This is a tremendous waste of everyone's time. She did not get disciplined for "teaching people something." She got disciplined for making everyone's life a nightmare.

  2. how is this a waste of time? how did she make everyone's life a nightmare? She only did what she had to because it was right!
