Teacher Wyman Gresham of Lauderhill Stem-Med Magnet School in Lauderhill, Florida, has been accused of sexual misconduct with a minor for the third time. He is finally being removed from the classroom by the Broward County School Board.
According to state records, while working for the school district in 1998, Gresham allegedly offered money to a 13-year old female “if she would strip for him and perform sexual acts.” A second allegation of misconduct followed in 2002 when Gresham was working at Dillard High School. This time, a female student alleged that he touched her on her hip area and made inappropriate comments and gestures about sexual acts. Despite those two complaints and an administrative finding of “gross immorality”, Gresham was able to keep his teaching certificate and remain employed by the Broward County School board.
Schools should always make child safety the highest priority. School districts must take every measure to ensure they do not employ adults who may be unfit to be around children or pose a risk of sexual misconduct.
