Raemon Matthews allegeldy intimidated a 17-year-old female student into posing for explicit photos in a classroom cage that was used for storage
Raemon Matthews, a nationally regarded history teacher at Samuel Gompers High School in the Bronx, has been barred from the classroom for sexual wrongdoing involving students.
An investigation by the New York City Department of Education found that Matthews intimidated a 17-year-old female student into posing for explicit photos in a classroom cage that was used for storage.
