Professor On Leave After Forcing Students to Vote for Obama


I don’t know why she’s on leave, isn’t that the whole point of the modern educational system? Professor Sharon Sweet just cut out all the empty talk and got right to the whole point of college… which isn’t to get an education or a good job.

A college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the upcoming elections. Early last week Professor Sharon Sweet at Brevard Community College (BCC) allegedly told students to sign a pledge that reads: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.” The pledge was printed off of GottaVote.org, a website funded by the Obama campaign.

What is moderately strange is that Sharon Sweet appears to be a math professor and yet she can’t do math well enough to realize that math is not on the side of Obama.

Sharon Sweet’s student ratings are downright poor and there’s general agreement that she’s impatient, rude and doesn’t like questions.

Will not explain things more than once. Not willing to help you with the work. Makes you feel stupid if you do not think the way she does.

and

She is an awful person. Told the class no excuses you miss a test its an F. My sister passed away, I got an F, for attending her funeral. Sad Sad Lady. She doesn’t explain and doesn’t help

and

From day one she had an agenda other than math studies, not being totally black ( looking ) I was in her sights constantly .

But don’t count on Sharon Sweet staying down for long. As a Senator in United Faculty of Florida’s local chapter, the local faculty union and the only one with the authority to bargain with the college, she’ll be back soon enough.

This is yet another reminder of why monitoring the campus and the work of the Freedom Center’s Student Center is so important.

    "Professor" Sweet is one of many college professors that have gone too far in indoctrinating students regarding politics and academic freedom in the universities. Radical "academics" have abused academic freedom for too long. Those radicals need to be monitored by organizations that truly believe in academic freedom and love our democracy. So-called "academics" like the lunatic Angela Davis have no business teaching in a university environment.

      Why does this pic look like a mug shot? Political clowns like this only get these jobs for their political views because they're hired by other liberals. One student evaluation said Sweet teaches "Liberal Arts." What's a math instructor doing teaching a liberal arts course? I had high hopes for our former community colleges when their names and statuses were upgraded. Now, I can see that the quality of instruction, at least in some of them, is just absolutely pathetic. Imagine the outrages this woman has perpetrated against white and non-liberal students! I shudder to think what kind of crap education programs the state colleges here offer. As a graduate of a 4 year university here, I can tell you that leftwing professors inhabit virtually every state institution for higher learning here. That said, I know some liberal professors who are STILL good, objective, effective and DECENT teachers and don't try to brainwash or blackmail students. This is truly an outrage.

    The reason she doesn't explain anything to her students is because she doesn't know the answer.

    She is an affirmative action teacher. Actually knowing her subject is not a requirement for the position.

    This is why teachers everywhere resist any kind of objective assessment of their abilities.

    • Deeb

      This is also why many community colleges are simply diploma mills. They hire strictly for affirmative action purposes and this one is a two-fer: she's a minority and she's a she. So when you have a B/F applicant, it wouldn't matter if you had a doctorate in mathematics from MIT, if you're white and especially a white male, FORGET IT. You ain't gettin' hired in a state college or university in this state.

    Sounds like she's the Barack Hussein Obama of community college math.

    "Mathematician" Sharon Sweet?????

    HA HA HA ….

    Oh, wait, she is the one who finally proved Fermat's Last Theorem, right?

    Oh, wait again. That was another person. An actual MATHEMATICIAN, I believe.

  • oldtimer

    On leave! Should be fired and never allowed to teach again…..

  • Kevin

    You guys have the photo wrong, this isn't a photo of her. She isn't black.

    That is a "suspicious" name for a black leftist.
