Brevard Community College College Recommends Firing for Professor Who Forced Students To Sign a Pledge to Vote For Obama and Democrats
The Brevard Community College professor, Sharon Sweet, who forced students to sign a pledge that they would vote for Obama may actually lose her job. Could there actually be some sanity in liberal academia? Sharon Sweet allegedly told students to sign a pledge that stated, “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.” The colleges’ president is asking that the tenured professor be fired. What, you mean it is not the job of a professor to force students in their class and sign a pledge card with the underlying perception that if you do not, you’re grades may suffer? Welcome to liberal academia extortion. After an investigation, a review board determined that Sweet both attempted to influence her students’ vote and misrepresented her intentions.
Vote for Obama or else …
From The Daily Caller:
A tenured professor who forced her students to sign pledges that they would vote for President Barack Obama last November should be fired, the college’s president recommended.
Sharon Sweet, an associate professor of mathematics at Brevard Community College in Florida, is guilty of electioneering, harassment, and incompetence, according to a three-month investigation into her classroom behavior leading up to the November election.
The Board of Trustees will hold a hearing on the matter, and then vote on whether to adopt President James Richey’s recommendation that Sweet be fired.
Tenured or not, this woman should be gone. No teacher should be allowed to use their position in a school to further their political agenda. The LEFT is against schools doing the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States, yet they are ok with a pledge to Obama?
