What can be done to stop teachers from getting involved romantically with students?


I have seen 3 cases this week of teachers having sexual relations with their high school and middle school students. What can be done to stop this from happening?

    You made an excellent point regarding respect. Most adults now days are introduced to children by their first name. The use of Mr. and Ms. was an instant respect buffer. A 12 year old calling you by your first name vs Ms./Mr. is a different mindset.

    When I was in school we never thought of teachers as being real humans. lol. It was always a shock to see one at a grocery store or driving around town. I can't imagine being Facebook (friends). If anything we tried to avoid adults socially!

    Yes but is a 13 year old really capable of making a rational choice about a crush? Also why aren't teachers punished more? Woman teachers typically get off with probation and loss of job.

    I couldn't agree with you more!! I also agree with you about men being thought of differently as compared to women in this same situation. It is EXACTLY the same situation, whether the teacher is a male or female, yet society sees it differently.
