Ohio State Fires Band Director Jonathan Waters Over ‘Sexualized’ Culture
Ohio State University has fired the director of its marching band
and is expanding an internal investigation that uncovered a deep
culture of sexual harassment among students that reportedly has
existed for years.
The two-month investigation, triggered by the complaint of a parent, revealed a cascade of evidence that students routinely harassed one another –– often directed at new band members by older students –– and that director Jonathan Waters knew about it or should have known.
