A new lawsuit claims that a Florida high school teacher groomed and sexually molested at least eight of his female students—and though administrators knew about the allegations beginning in 2008, the teacher apparently did not face disciplinary action.
Jason Edward Meyers, a creative writing teacher, worked in two Miami-Dade high schools over 14 years, in which time he allegedly pursued sexual relationships with eight of his current or former students, The Miami Herald reported.
