Cell phones and texting leave an electronic trail that's often the giveaway. I think in the olden days it happened but no clues were left behind.

Two big differences today: It's now a major focus of law enforcement, and the presence of social media, which makes the presence of a relationship more easily detectable.

Decades ago, it was not unusual for a teacher to wed a student once the student turned 18 and graduated. For whatever reason, coaches and cheerleaders seemed to be the most often occurrence. It would provoke gossip, but not much else.

If I had to venture a guess, it would be something along the lines of women-who tend to hit their "peak" in their 30's meeting men-who usually peak in their late teens. The whole "cougar" concept taken to a new level: a horny woman about to exit her peak beauty years presented with an opportunity to be with an attractive, fit young man who has both the stamina and raging hormones.

It shouldn't be at all difficult to figure THAT question out.

If you do a Google search using the phrase "teacher sleeps with student", you'll receive over 2.6 million hits.

This. Just like older guys are attracted to younger, more fertile women. I don't know what these kids look like. Some 16 yr old guys look pretty mature, but if the kid looks like a young boy then I can't understand it.

Unless they get off on the idea of "teaching" the inexperienced.

41 Female Teachers Arrested for Inappropriate Relations With Students[/quote]
Wow! All these women are beautiful and educated. It's a sad societal commentary when they indulge in sexual acts with minors and/or students. I'd imagine there's a combination of factors involved in this. Besides mental illness, some of these teachers possibly were sexually abused when they were younger. Or it could be a power thing. Or maybe some of them just didn't feel appreciated by their husbands and enjoyed the attention they received from younger boys (which they might not have gotten when they were in high school). Whatever the cause, I agree that it needs to be discussed and integrated into teacher training programs. I'm sure it's more commonplace that the general public knows as the media (especially national) tends to focus primarily on the hot teachers. I also agree that it's just as criminal when a hot female teacher engages in this behavior as it is when a male teacher does it even if it's harder to indentify the boy as a victim.

most of those chicks on that page arent bad looking

it can't be a sex thing because what can a 15yr old do for a 40 yr old woman

3-5 pumps and your done at that age

in that case i think it was that jealousy that many mothers have of their daughters

Have student transferred, no drama, just out of the direct line of sight, and intensive counseling to determine the core issues of the attraction.
You would transfer the student because the teacher has feeling for him/her???

When I was in HS I knew a kid who was pumping his English Teacher.. Some of the other teachers knew about it but no one really paid attention to it.. The guys all thought it was cool... The girls thought it was weird why he liked an older female...

He grew up, got a job and made a career out of it.. He is married and no kids and is about to retire soon.... His wife knows about this and says it ain't no big deal casue it was years ago....

I noticed this trend, and I also think it is weird. I saw pictures of a couple of the students, and they didn't look that great. Having said that, I was in a car with a 19 year old. He smelled really good. LOL Maybe it is some weird biological thing.

I do think that people are more lenient when it comes to female teachers. They assume the male students are willing to have s@x...but there were a couple I read about where the teachers were really aggressive with the students. I can see the kid's being pretty upset, and if I were a parent, I think I would be unhappy.

There was also another theory about certain types of medication causing this type of behavior. An antidepressant, I think. It could just have been B.S. Just like girls, there are probably boys who have fantasies about their teachers or think a teacher is "hot." I don't think this should turn into a sexual relationship, though. I can't see how it would be healthy.

Also, I am not sure this has been going on forever. I went to a single-sex school and there was one teacher who I was told later had a s@xual relationship with a girl. There was also a teacher who was married to one of his former students. This was high-school. I thought it was weird and gross, and definitely abuse. But FEMALE teachers, and teenage boys. Hmm I have been under a rock.
