In Santa Barbara, Grading Papers Outside = Protest

By SHARE

Teaching assistants at UC-Santa Barbara held a "grade-in," conducting their work out in the open to showcase the "excessive" workloads caused by burgeoning class size, the Daily Nexus reports. "We wanted to emphasize the fact that we are workers, a fact which we feel is often lost to the university," said one of the protesters. The local United Auto Workers chapter teamed up with the student employees—because we all know how well that worked out for the American auto workforce. —Alison Go
