Apparently, Ruth Tucker, a former professor at Calvin Seminary was fired under rather questionable circumstances.
By questionable, I mean that she had good evaluations and didn’t do anything in particular wrong. From what she’s written about the event, it seems that her removal may largely result from her gender.
It’s an odd thing.
I don’t want to draw any conclusions having heard only one side of the story, but she’s got a lot of supporting material up on her site.
If true, it puts Neal Plantinga, one of the CRC’s better known scholars (currently president of Calvin Theological Seminary) in a very bad light. Of course, it may be that he wasn’t directly involved. It may be the that the administration had been given bad information. I don’t know. From what she says though, it seems unlikely proper procedure was followed.
