‘Predatory’ Miami teacher had sex with multiple students over 14 years, suit says
MIAMI, FLORIDA – The Miami-Dade School Board has been sued over allegations it turned a blind eye to high school teacher Jason Edward Meyers, who was accused of having sex with multiple students over the course of 14 years — spending so much time with some underage women they were referred to as “Jason’s girls.”
Meyers was arrested last year and faces charges for sexual battery on a minor. His criminal case is ongoing and he has been on house arrest. He was fired by the district soon after his arrest.
The suit, first reported by The Miami Herald, accuses the district of transferring Meyers from one school to another even though it knew about his inappropriate behavior with underage students. Meyers, a creative writing teacher, taught at Dr. Michael M. Krop High School, where he was accused of having sex with students, and in 2011 he was moved to Miami Palmetto High, the suit alleges.
