“Washington Hebrew Preschool Sued over Worker Accused of Child Sex Abuse,” NBC 4 Washington
April 17, 2019
A Hebrew preschool in Northwest Washington, D.C., is accused of ignoring signs that one of its teachers was sexually abusing children.
The Washington Post reports several parents filed a lawsuit against the Washington Hebrew Congregation school on Monday. The lawsuit says the teacher took at least seven 3- and 4-year-old children to remote areas on campus and sexually abused them.
It says the abuse happened for more than a year, though complaints of inappropriate behavior were brought to school officials soon after his hiring in March 2016.
