Brevard Community College has fired Professor Sharon Sweet who forced her students to sign this pledge:
Brevard Community College (BCC) has fired a professor after a school investigation concluded she required students to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the run-up to the 2012 election.
The schools spokesman John Glisch, said the Board of Trustees voted Wednesday morning to terminate mathematics professor Sharon Sweet with an overwhelming vote.
The board voted 3-1, with one member absent, to dismiss professor Sweet, Glisch told Campus Reform Wednesday afternoon.
The termination took effect immediately, ending pay and benefits for Sweet who had been suspended with pay under provisions of the United Faculty of Florida collective bargaining agreement with the college, pending the boards decision, the school added in a press release.
BCC was hurled into the national spotlight last year for Sweets actions after a Campus Reform exposé highlighted her alleged demand for students to support the Democratic Party in the 2012 elections.
The schools president later recommended to the Board of Trustees that professor Sweet should be fired, following an investigation that found her guilty of harassment, incompetence, misconduct, and unprofessional behavior.
Sweet was a tenured professor who had taught at the college five years. She earned $40,000 annually.
Well, ain’t she Sweet?!
Maybe now she can get a job at Regal Theaters for 29 hours a week.
She should go to a dating website and hook up with the jerk who harassed that poor Chick Fil A employee. They would make the perfect pair. Just hope they don’t breed.
I wonder how many other union teachers do this?
I’m sure she’s not the only college professor in our country to pull a stunt like this. I want all of those who did something similar to receive the exact same fate.
"Professor?" Righhhht! Instructor, lecturer or part-time teacher maybe. A lot of college salaries suck but I doubt there is any full professor in the US making only $40k.
Wow! I went to BOX for 2 years after I finished my military service. Glad they got rid of this clown. I am shocked that people try to do things like this. Just shows how nutty and arrogant these folks can be. JEEZ!!!
Math isn’t what it used to be.
Professor Sharon Sweet
“Lamont, you big dummy!!”
My God. What is that?
What took Brevard Community College so long?
SWEET!!!! She’s history! Go ahead and apply for unemployment benefits Sharon. Your savior Barack Bottom will take care of you. He might even throw in a free cell phone. Wait, that was only to buy votes wasn’t it? Oh well, he will come up with something to give you at the taxpayers’ expense. Good riddance to you!
