MELBOURNE, FL — An algebra instructor at Brevard Community College has been fired after an investigation by college officials found that she urged -- and forced in some cases -- students to sign pledge cards promising to vote for President Barack Obama in November.
Associate Professor Sharon will have the ability to appeal the decision through arbitration or to request an appeal hearing.
A motion to terminate passed 3-1; Steve Charpentier voted against. He said that he felt her actions warranted punishment, but not termination.
