Fire Olga Perez UnStable Cox

  • by: Joshua R
  • target: Coastline Community College District Board of Trustees, and Orange Coast College President

We the students, community members, and taxpayers will not stand for community college students at Orange Coast College being targeted and bullied by their professor in class. We understand that classrooms are meant for education and not indoctrination, and professors should not use their positions of authority to create a hostile learning environment.

By calling the election of Donald Trump "an act of terrorism," and asking Trump supporters to stand, in another of her total of three Human Sexuality classes of close to 200 students, she clearly abused her power, and we will not stand for it. Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox has no place continuing to teach at Orange Coast College, and for the brave student who recorded the footage we ask that campus administration write a letter stating they will not be seeking disciplinary action against them. We also ask that more diversity and equity training be taken by instructors at the college to assure students are treated fairly.

We acknowledge everyone has a right to free speech and teachers have academic freedom over their curriculum and how it is taught. However, when discussion switches from curriculum to inflammatory remarks targeting students it crosses a line and becomes free speech that people have a right to express their own opinion about.
