guilty of “harassment, incompetence, misconduct, and unprofessional behavior.”

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.

Brevard Community College has fired Professor Sharon Sweet who forced her students to sign this pledge.


The school’s 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 board’s decision,” the school added in a press release.

A very angry person that has no business around children or students!

BCC was hurled into the national spotlight last year for Sweet’s actions after a Campus Reform exposé highlighted her alleged demand for students to support the Democratic Party in the 2012 elections.


The school’s 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.
