Flat crowbar to get the board off then scraper to get after the remains ... I assume it's been put on with an adhesive of sorts... Once you get the corkboard down and have nothing left but adhesive, you can try numerous solvents - depending on what you find.

It may or may not require a crow bar but you definetly need something with a wide stiff edge. The first one will probably be the hardest to remove. After that just get under the edge of each tile and peel/rip them off. As thezster said paint thinner can be used to remove the adhesive. You will also likely need to do some minor wall patching.
