An Education Workforce Council EWC Fitness to Practice hearing was told that the pair began messaging each other on Instagram before swapping naked pictures of each other. There was no relationship of a sexual nature between us. The hearing was told that the teenager, who was only referred to as Colleague A, made a series of allegations about Mr Lawrence to senior staff the day after the relationship – which lasted five or six weeks – ended. He admitted two allegations – that on an unknown date sometime between May 11 and June 21, – he kissed the teenager on the school site during the school day and that during that time he allowed around 11 pupils out of his sight without adult supervision. Mr Lawrence said: “For those 10 seconds they were unsupervised, but I was confident they would not put themselves in any danger.
I’m dating my highschool teacher
Some forums can only be seen by registered members. From a bureaucratic perspective perspective so long as the teacher does not have ANY managerial authority over the student there is no problem. From a social perspective it is no body’s business except for the people involved. This discussion is just another example of the rampant I hope that is not too sugestive pruditry on this board. When I was a senior in HS many decades ago at the height of late 50’s pruditry I did not restrict my “dating” to high school girls.
Given the memories I am darn glad I did not follow all the restrictions my parents and other well meaning adults were trying to put me under.

British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Teachers should not be prosecuted for having affairs with their sixth formers, a union chief has said. NASUWT general secretary Chris Keates said it was an “anomaly” that a teacher who had sex with a pupil aged over 16 could go on the sex offenders register. She told ITV’s Tonight programme the law was wrong because a teacher could legally enter a relationship with a sixth former at another school. Child protection professionals have criticised her comments.
In , the law was changed to make it illegal for teachers to engage in sexual activity with pupils at their school aged under But Miss Keates said the abuse of trust law had gone too far in cases where the relationship started after a pupil had reached the age of consent. Since , teachers have been prosecuted for relationships with pupils but a Sheffield University study suggested as many as 1, intimate relationships develop every year.
NSPCC policy advisor Zoe Hilton said: “The law is very clear that if a teacher abuses his or her position by forming a sexual relationship with a pupil they could be prosecuted and this remains the case even if the child gives their consent.

Kansas Ban on Teacher-Student Sex Holds
Law against teachers and year-old students having sex is wrong (Opinion) “a teaching staff member or substitute teacher, school bus driver, other Now I’m not advocating that teachers and school workers start dating.
The legislation was prompted by the high-profile case of a year-old Modesto teacher who left his wife and three children to move in with an 18 year-old student. Its two Republican members were absent, and one Democrat abstained from voting. Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen, R-Modesto, who sponsored the bill, accused committee members of siding with predators. It also would have stripped offending teachers of their pensions and retiree health care benefits.
In California the age of consent is The bill was prompted by the relationship of teacher Christopher Hooker and student Jordan Powers. Hooker was arrested this month on suspicion of sexually abusing a different student more than a decade ago. A judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. He and Powers broke up after the allegation surfaced. The California Federation of Teachers and American Civil Liberties Union opposed the bill, and several committee members said the bill was an overreaction to an isolated case.
Olsen said at least 16 other states have passed similar laws.
On March 1, , outrage erupted and national headlines were created when James Hooker, a 41 year old teacher at a high school in Modesto, California, announced that he quit his job, left his wife and family, and moved in with an 18 year old student, Jordan Powers. Both student and teacher have maintained that, while they met when the student was 14, their relationship did not become physical until she turned 18 years old. While this matter is still under investigation, the student’s mother claims that phone records demonstrate the existence of an estimated 8, text messages between the teacher and student that date back to the summer of , when the student was a minor.
Governor Murphy signed into law a a bill making it illegal for teachers, school bus drivers, and other supervisors to have sex with students even if they are over Under the new law, which takes effect immediately, “a teaching staff member or substitute teacher, school bus driver, other school employee, contracted service provider, or volunteer” would be guilty of a new second-degree crime if he sexually penetrates a student who is between 18 and years-old and has not received a diploma.
While I can understand where they are coming from for minors, when it comes to those over 18, I couldn’t disagree with this more. At what point in New Jersey is an adult an adult? If 18 is the legal age, then you should be able to make your own decisions about who you want to have sex with regardless of how you know them. They say the law is to protect those with special needs and while I can understand the sentiment, I ask if their rights are being compromised as well.
Now I’m not advocating that teachers and school workers start dating students, but once you’re of legal age, where you can vote for who you want and are legally and criminally responsible for your actions, you should be able to make your own decisions as to who you want to have sex with. Having said that, if you feel that a teacher or school worker is taking advantage, or assaulting you then there are laws that deal with that.
I’m all for the sexual assault victims’ bill of rights. But what if there’s an actual solid relationship based on love? There are young men and women who enter the education profession right out of college in their early 20s. You could be talking about as little as a 5-year difference in age. What if a school worker honestly fell in love with an adult student who hadn’t graduated yet?

Sexual relationships between teachers and pupils aged 16 and over have been happening for a long time. Some teachers get into sexual relationships with students who are under the age of This post is not concerned with such cases and is not about revisiting whether sexual activity with children is wrong. The law is clear.
The Washington Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that student age doesn’t matter in teacher-sex cases, even if the student is 18 and.
Why would it be “illegal”? Both the parties are legally adults and if consenting there is no legal implications to the contrary. The problem as I read the answers has to do with what is considered to be “morally correct” not legally correct and the implications are vastly different. Many individuals date and some marry persons extremely younger than them. In some cultures around the world, not the western world, this is the norm.
In ancient times, during the time of Christ, a man has his “Bar Mitzvah” at an age later than today and women were of marriageable age once they reached the age of “first blood”.

A former Long Island City High School teacher inappropriately texted female students, boosted failing grades, gave students money, gifts, alcohol and slept with one student, according to a new city investigation. Math teacher Peter Muhlbach, 53, of Woodside, engaged in inappropriate behavior with several female students dating back to at least , according to a report by the Special Commissioner of Investigation SCI released Thursday.
In January , Muhlbach began a sexual relationship with a student and supplied her with alcohol and various drugs, according to the report. Muhlbach supported the former student financially throughout the course of their relationship. He gave her free use of his car and a credit card. She recently ended their relationship after learning her former teacher was hiding her mail and was moving to Florida, according to the report.
All the while, Muhlbach continued to prey on teenage students at Long Island City High School, engaging in flirty behavior, offering them money and gifts and asking them to meet for drinks outside of school. Commissioner Anastasia Coleman began the investigation in December when the office received an anonymous complaint that Muhlbach had an inappropriate relationship with a female student and that there were photos on social media of the pair together at a bar. Two months later, Assistant Principal Maria Argyris alerted SCI that parents of a year-old student found inappropriate text messages with the math teacher on her phone.
Several students who spoke with investigators corroborated that their teacher texted many of his female students, often in a flirtatious way. The year-old said Muhlbach openly told students who were about to graduate that they could go out for drinks together after graduation.

James Hooker, the year-old business teacher at a Modesto high school shocked the nation when he had a relationship with a year-old student and they moved in together.
