A professor in Florida is under fire today after forcing her students to sign a pledge to vote for Barack Obama and Democrats. Oliver Darcy over at Campus Reform has more:
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.
University administrators said they learned about the incident late Thursday afternoon and launched an investigation, after they received a phone call from a concerned parent.
Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately, reads a statement put out by John Glisch, Associate Vice President for Communications at BCC.
The college will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her class, continues the statement.
Sweets actions may have also violated Floridas election laws.
The pledge was printed by Sweet from GottaVote.org, a voter registration website paid for by the Obama campaign. I'm pretty certain Ms. Sweet failed to tell her students that 50 percent of recent college graduates can't find a job and that they'll most likely have to move back in with their parents after school as a result. Young America's Foundation points out the youth misery index has hit a record high of 90.6.
Young Americas Foundation has released the Youth Misery Index (YMI), which has reached a record high (90.6) and has grown more than 25 percent in four years17 percent since the Obama administration took office.
To calculate the index, Young Americas Foundation adds together youth unemployment, average graduating student debt (in thousands), and national debt per capita (in thousands). At no point in recent history has life been harder for Americas young people.
The Youth Misery Index represents a three-pronged attack on young Americans financial securityeducational debt from their past, unemployment in the present, and a future plagued by the burden of massive government debt.
Youth unemployment is at 17.4 percentone of the highest levels since World War II. Average graduating student debt has reached a record-breaking $26,300. National debt per capita is $46,900the highest ever. Add it up, and the Youth Misery Index comes out to 90.6 (17.4 + 26.3 + 46.9 = 90.6). What does this number mean? Like Jimmy Carters Misery Index, the YMI uncovers some real threats to our nations prosperity.
The economy doesn't run on hope and change, it runs on strong businesses and economic growth, both lacking under Obama.
There ain't no 'may have' about it...............
Placed on leave? She should be s-canned.
Good thread over here with lots of info on her:
Apparently w/ a mugshot. Her teacher’s rating is REALLY bad on “Rate My Professor”. The comments are hilarious.
wish i’d have been in that class. i had one professor like that, and we rebelled against her in open class. i was the first one to confront her to her face when she tried this partisan BS. others files suit. it was an interesting term. I got a “B”
she has to remain on the books till the end of the semester. if she’s an adjunct, say farewell.
The word “FIRED” does not appear anywhere in the article.
No worries. The youth will still vote for him, because he is cool man. He smokes weed. He snorts a little coke. He smokes crack. Like he is a cool dude. So, they will fall in line and vote for him and hope he excuses their student loans.
Placed on leave? She should be s-canned.””
She should also be denied unemployment.
This is outrageous action on her part!!!!!
This is the quality of teacher a parent goes into debt to send their precious little Johnny or Molly to for 4 years?
Time for the BIG RESET button.
