Is anyone fact checking?

I’m sorry, but *nothing* the student in the most recent episode said checks out. The environment they’re describing is completely incongruous with reality.

Facts, per this person:
Classes were “sometimes an hour, sometimes two, or whatever it depends” and “it was a pretty big lecture, about 300 people” and “I had nothing to do because I’d done the reading or whatever so I would just stare at BK” and “TAs would give power points about their personal lives?” No, I’m sorry, that’s not a thing. None of it is a thing. If you’ve done the reading, you don’t sit there staring at a random TA in a room that ostensibly contains 300+ people.

I was a TA in grad school at another large state university, and this was very recent. Classes, especially large lectures, are absolutely not variable in length in either grad school or undergrad. They start and end almost to the minute. Large lecture halls are generally in use by different classes and Profs throughout the day, and that time is scheduled. Students also have differing class schedules, as do Profs and TAs, and staying for an additional unscheduled hour is frankly beyond the realm of possibility.

There’s no reason a TA would give a power point about their personal life. We present slides during scheduled review sessions, but these are for course material, typically before exams. We get to know the students who come to office hours, but generally can’t be personal friends with them, even with an anonymous grading system. Also, sitting next to a different person every day in a lecture of that size is very unlikely… most Profs have seating charts for attendance.

Doctoral students are often given work study assignments, like being a TA, without having to demonstrate proficiency or even know the Prof beforehand. The assertion that BK was an excellent student and became a TA because the Prof noticed him is clearly not valid — he did his undergrad at a different University. He probably just had a work study assignment like a lot of PhD students, nothing more or less.

I don’t know anything about this case beyond what’s been in the media and haven’t gone to great lengths to research it. I also don’t have an opinion about BK’s guilt or innocence. Let the court decide. But this is so patently incorrect it feels like someone needs to mention that this literally isn’t how a classroom works, and it makes me wonder about this podcast’s fact-checking standards.
