Dating teacher illegal

I support rules against professors having sexual relationships with their professors, because it’s all too easy for the power dynamic in that situation to be abused.I’m surprised there aren’t stricter rules about them already!It’s probably a semester or two at most that a teacher or student would have to keep their feelings under wraps.Unless a student is sleeping with their advisor or department head, the professors who have a “professional responsibility” to their new hookup would in most cases change at the end of the semester, or at the latest, the year.That being said, though, we also have to be reasonable about how not every student in this scenario is a “victim” of a “predatory” teacher: I have a friend who has been happily dating for years the man who was a teaching assistant at a class she took in college.I genuinely don’t believe she was “sexually harassed” by him. Even in an age when the feminists apparently control everything, it seems that the practice of older (usually male) scholars sleeping with much younger (usually female) graduate students is alive and …well, I wouldn’t say “well.” With two such relationships making recent news in the discipline of philosophy alone, for some of the older generation of professors (again, mostly male), the grad students are still a dating pool—and vice versa.

It’s not realistic, because grown women fall in love and have affairs with older men and nobody can legislate this.” “Banning love” is a bit of a melodramatic overstatement.“If a woman co-authors with a more senior man (and notice the heterosexism that we always assume heterosexual relationships),” explains Rachel Mc Kinnon, an assistant professor at the College of Charleston, “some people either explicitly or implicitly suspect that they’re in a romantic relationship, and that the senior scholar only offered to help her publish for romantic interests.This happens even if there’s no truth to it.” And the consequences go far beyond the couple.Take this example from Carla Fehr, associate director of the American Philosophical Association’s Committee on the Status of Women in the Profession Site Visit Program, which conducted the recent visit to the University of Colorado–Boulder that resulted in the ouster of the chair and the freezing of graduate admissions.Let’s say, Fehr proposes, a woman whose adviser has a reputation for dalliances with students goes out on the job market.Institutional policies that forbid such relationships? Many universities have these already, and they rarely seem to matter.Off-site visits, such as the one Carla Fehr engineered?There are lots of things one should not do in college, such as eat ramen noodles for every meal 16 weeks straight, but that does not stop most of us from doing it anyway.Several colleges are trying to put the kibosh on at least one at-times ill-advised decision: a ban on professors banging their students.So why does it still happen (other than the fact that people enjoy having sex)?It happens because in many academic disciplines—such as, of course, philosophy, which already enjoys a reputation for misconduct—there is a tendency for beginning scholars to have “philosophical idols,” as explained to me by Meena Krishnamurthy, an assistant professor at the University of Manitoba.

  1. Can I date my child's teacher. is a tough decision but i think you will have to find out how the teacher will react when you are dating before you take.

  2. It depends on who you are, your age, your position, etc. There is nothing illegal about dating a substitute teacher in general.

  3. Do you guys think it's ever okay to date your high school teacher after graduation, given that the student is a mature 18 year-old and teacher is in 20s or early 30s?

  4. Is it illegal for an adult to. or responsible for your safety such as a teacher. feel if your dad or your uncle were dating one of your friends or.
