College: Fire professor who forced students to vote for Obama
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.
I’ll be optimistic. I’ll put the chances of this professor being canned for this egregious violation of FL law in the 60%-70% range. And the chances this college president will be disciplined for this recommendation down in the 5%-15% range.
