Music school says 11 fired in 13 years for sex misconductNovember 13, 2017 10:47pm

BOSTON (AP) — The president of a prestigious music school in Boston says 11 faculty members have been fired during the past 13 years for sexual assault and harassment.

The Boston Globe reports Berklee College of Music President Roger Brown apologized during a Monday forum to students who have been assaulted and pledged to "root out abusive behavior."

The forum comes after the newspaper's investigation found Berklee has allowed three professors to quietly leave the school since 2008 after students complained the men had sexually harassed or assaulted them.

The investigation found several students reported being assaulted, groped or pressured into sex with teachers.

Students walked out of classes Monday to protest the alleged assaults. Hundreds marched to the performance center where the campus forum was held.
