it doesn't add up does it?

25/09/2012 at 08:39

does 1 + 1 = 2 in this case?

25/09/2012 at 08:45

I feel bad for his wife and family - there's been nothing about their worry etc.

EKGO - why doesnt it add up? Can they not just be besotted with each other?

Emmy I apologise for the joke in bad taste, but if he is a trusted Teacher, no they can not be besotted with each other

definitely a joke.but agree with ERGO.no being besotted is not good enough...teachers have to deal with teenage girls having crushes..........its a part of the job.and girls younger and younger are having crushes.............I hear 11 years old saying that they love so and so.............

where do you draw the line.........................easy no teacher touches a school child........

I agree with seren, I had an affair with a married teacher when I was 17 and in the 6th form, he was 33, married with a small child. Of course it's not something I'm proud of in any way, I did feel out of my depth and swept off my feet.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into. There isn't the emotional maturity to cope with it at that age and the power relationship makes it very wrong too.

Oh dear... sorry - it's a bit early this morning.... I agree that as a teacher and in a position of trust - he should know better.

Did he sweep you off your feet KK? In my experience it's usually the girl that does all the chasing. The older man or woman needs to have enough decency/maturity or whatever to say no.

No I didn't chase at all. This was a slightly different situation, the guy was from the neighbouring school. The schools used to combine to go on the annual ski trip. I remember the other girls in the 6th form saying how good looking he was (that's 17yr old relationship judgement criteria). On one of the first evenings when the other kids went to bed, the 6th form students were allowed to stay up and drink with the teachers, and we did. I got up to go to the loo and he followed me and kissed me, I didn't push him away and it started from there.

I finished it several months later because I realised, really realised that this man was married with a kid. I also as I've said felt out of my depth, he was very besotted with me and I couldn't eat or sleep and the shit was beginning to hit the fan in the schools.

I only talk about it now because it was 24 years ago.

society seems to take a different view in those situations. it is almost a joke. although it doesn't seem to happen anywhere near as often. (or perhaps no-one complains!)

Apologies for earlier rants but this is something I'm quite passionate about, and cannot the stand passive stance that most organisations take, I have to deal with it in my work, so as a matter of interest do others see it in daily life and how do you combat this?

And same sex teacher/pupil relationships. In my years of teaching I had to deal with several crushes pupils had, being PE, quite a few of those were girls.

I think pupils having crushes is a natural part of puberty, and there are ways of handling it sensitively but with consummate professionalism.

Female teachers having relationships with male pupils are now dealt as severely with by the courts as if it were the other way round.  The girls' school where I worked a female teacher had an affair with one of the pupils aged 15 and was subsequently sent to prison for it.

This is really horrifying reading.

As a daughter of two teachers I see every day how seriously they both take their work. Not an evening goes by without a pile of papers on the back table or hours of research on the laptop - but they love what they do, or they wouldn't be doing it. (Let's face it, you don't go into teaching for the money, and their rapidly approaching pensions have shrunk to nothing over tha last year.)

So to hear about a few slimy individuals, male or female, who are so flattered by a teenage crush that they cannot control their own inappropriate desires makes me feel sick.

Anyone who would abuse their position of authority in that way is committing an act of child abuse and should be dealt with accordingly. Creeps.

The story made me google a chap who taught at my (girls') school.  He left very suddenly (mid-term) and the rumour mill was that allegations had been made against him.  Turns out he's currently serving 3 years for having sex with a 15 year old girl.  I hope the teacher in this current case does the right thing and brings the girl back home.  However wise and mature she thinks she is, in 10 years' time she'll realise she wasn't.
