But go ahead and keep believing everything was so perfect back in your day....
IF it continues be reported regularly like this, the public will certainly become tolerant of it eventually, in fact, i would say most people on here are no longer shocked by these stories....that is the first step in desensitization.

Like I said, you have no clue.

Well maybe you might. Think back to your elementary teachers and what they did, and how. Now think about the same things for high school. See any differences?

The rest of what you've said is just mostly bull**** disguised as what you think is fact.

Not really. Male teachers are still at it; they just don't make the tabloids as often as their female counterparts.

The reason these stories get written about is because it still IS shocking. Reporting on pork and soybean futures is dry and boring...although still news. But...where's a thread on THAT?

Fact is more young female teachers are engaging in this type of behavior with their teenage students than in the past. If we really think this is a problem, keeping young teachers out of high school classrooms would help alleviate the problem. Another approach is to stop making such a big deal about it, regardless of the genders of the teachers and students involved. Maybe it's not even a problem worth trying to solve. I think the era where male teachers are made in to pariahs and female teachers are given a high five are at an end though, despite the typical "where were these teachers when I was a kid" remarks you see from more shallow minds on this topic.

If it's a problem there is a solution, if it's not a problem then let's stop bitching about it.

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?
Oh no, another one? Colleges should start teaching ethics in their Education curriculums, at least give these teachers the tools to recognize where the line is drawn and how not to cross it.

She's not being charged with statutory rape, so apparently the student was beyond the age of consent. It's inappropriate and the district should certainly fire her, but I just don't think this should be considered a crime.

It's not criminal for college professors to fraternize with their students, or doctors with patients. Why is this any different?

No, it's just being reported more and now penalized. As recently as the 1990s (actually later) teachers who were caught in indiscretions with students were many times promoted to school based administration or central office jobs like curriculum development or subject area supervision, at much higher pay rates. Those that weren't were allowed to resign.

As recently as 2010 in my former system we had a teacher who was banging Senior girls two at a time. When discovered he became a Peer Mediation Specialist and is now an Assistant Principal.

Really...you are still truly shocked when you see news articles about this kind of thing?


To be honest, I was shocked when I first started hearing these types of stories (years ago), but definitely not anymore, Ive almost come to expect them every so often.


The more something is reported over and over again, the less shocking it is over time.

So it's not a big problem then, and no solutions are necessary in your estimation. If only everyone else agreed with you, we wouldn't have to constantly hear about these situations.

If ever it does become a problem though, there is an obvious solution.
