University Of Alberta Math Professor Mikhail Kovalyov has it right on. The backstabbers in U Of A Math Administration had no right to overturn his grades & grade point averages if the students that were marked earned better grades. It shows that the nuts are running the asylum to a degree in the U Of A Math Department. Then to threaten job action against a fulltime tenured Prof. when its they who remarked legitimately graded papers: quite frankly its atrocious. Seems like David McNeilly in Faculty Service is full of crap. He just wants Prof. Kovalyov II fail more students so they'll be out of pocket 1000's more in cash in having II retake the courses. What kind of school is the U of A running? First they take away phone lines of Professors so its even harder to communicate with them. Next they attack the basic human rights of sound educators? Maybe Mr. McNeilly & his compadres should be the ones fired!
