I'm pretty certain all new teachers hear a variation of this somewhere during their first year.
yes, these offenders need to go to prison...women's prison

And don't tell me this has always gone on to this extant. I don't believe it. I went to school in the 1970's and 1980's. Believe me, we were no "prudes". We just tended to date other STUDENTS and the teachers did the jobs they were hired and paid to do and otherwise left us alone. That is, after all, what you're supposed to do when your hired for a job? As a teacher, you plan classes, participate on the school staff, and hopefully, TEACH something. Not sit around and try and figure out how you can get it in some kid's pants (or panties).

So disgusting.

It happens. Great that it didn't happen in your school. It's not supposed to, after all. But it happens. And it happened in the 70's, and it happened in the 80's and it happened in the 90's, etc.


Heck, the song, "Don't Stand So Close to Me" by The Police, came out in 1980, and it's EXACTLY about this topic, except a male teacher, female student.


And in the movie "Election" 1999, Reese Witherspoon plays a high school student who seduces one of the teachers.


There are other movies about this topic as well. 2006's Notes on a Scandal, about a female teacher who has an affair with her 15 yr. old student


Really...there's a few movies on the topic

I agree with the OP by the way. I've been saying for years that the young attractive fresh out of college teachers should start out teaching in the younger grades and move up to the older grades when there is more age disparity. For whatever reason our young women today seem to have a belief that they are unaccountable for any and all sexual activity they engage in regardless of circumstances, and that makes many of them unfit to teach teenage boys with their raging hormones and increasing sexual maturity.

I'm sure this may be controversial to say, but should we really let anyone, male or female teach high school kids when they're barely out of HS themselves?
Yes, we should. These incidences are rare, yet every single one of them seems to get posted up on discussion boards. Why? A cheap, erotic thrill, I guess.

It may seem like there are alot of these cases happening today, but I can pretty much guarantee, the vast majority of teacher/student hook ups, are NOT being discovered.


When its a male teacher and female student, I would bet anything 9 out of 10 ten times, the female student was the initiator /aggressor.

You then obviously know nothing about teacher training. The mindset and training of teachers for the different levels (primary, early adolescent, primary) is totally different because.......the things that have to be taught as well as the methods are completely different.

In any case, people already accuse males teaching elementary kids of being pedophiles and now you want to force them into that level.

For people to insist that schools should teach the teachers not do have relations with their students shows how screwed up society is. Morals can't be taught to an adult. They must be instilled in a child by the parents, by example, and yes, even by the church and the neighbors. As much as I dislike Hillary, I agree that it takes a village to raise a child.

When the village stops teaching, the parents stop raising, the neighbors stop caring, and the schools worry more about the children bowing their heads in prayer, society ends up with predatory teachers and students who submit to their lusts rather than their studies.
Lol, that is incredibly naive to actually believe. I guarantee you it was happening back then, but it was never brought to light. It's been happening since the dawn of time, and will continue to happen. Now, society has become less tolerant of it and technology makes it easy to spread every instance of it far and wide.

But go ahead and keep believing everything was so perfect back in your day....

here are a couple examples of abuse by teachers starting in the 1950's:

https://www.philly.com/philly/news/G...ry-School.html

https://www.thecut.com/2017/10/new-r...ey-school.html

It simply was ignored or the children molested were afraid to say anything. The "morals" you brag about in the past actually made it easier for someone to molest a child and get away with it. Because people today are less concerned about what two consenting adults are doing has changed does not make an adult molesting a child acceptable. It still is illegal and is not at all acceptable.



The church? Look at the endless allegations of child abuse perpetrated by those who were part of churches. If any group of people should know right and wrong on something like this it would be a priest or other clergy yet its been going on for eons and often covered up by those religious institutions.

There has always been sick people out there. That did not begin in the 1970's. What has changed since the 1960's is children and adults abused are less afraid to speak up which is really the only deterrent to these individuals. The faster they are caught and taken off the streets the safer things are.
You've got to be kidding me with your ridiculous rebuttal about church and people of faith. Church as a whole, along with people of faith are mostly decent, moral people. We do not molest children, nor do we believe in covering up those sick actions by the Catholic priesthood.

Just like "not all Muslims are bad", neither is the whole body of the church because of the actions of a few. Don't lump us either.

We WERE a better society many decades back.

High humor.

Oh, yes, that magical era wherein teacher-student diddling didn't exist. Good Lord, I didn't think anyone was this hopelessly naive.

But then, anyone who would slap the label THE DAYS OF MORALITY on the era of segregation and lynchings clearly has rather ... uh, 'interesting' ... ideas of what constitutes morality.

Continuing education would get them up to speed as they advanced in grade level and they wouldn't jump from teaching third graders directly to teaching high schoolers. And it seems nowadays the problem is more women than men. The men know people won't put up with their shenanigans but the women are taught as they grow up that their sexuality and how they express it should never be questioned. An increasing number are simply not responsible enough or emotionally mature enough to handle teaching boys reaching sexual maturity.
