At The School District In Texas...

...there was a very young high school teacher, 22 years old, I think. He got involved with a student (not someone in his classes) who was 16. They tried to keep it secret, but it got around. The parents of the girl approved of the relationship.

The school board tried to fire him, and was informed by his lawyer that the district had no rules against such a relationship. Lo and behold, the district did not.

So, they adopted rules to go into effect for the future. The teacher stayed on for another year, during which time he was pressured so heavily that he ended up resigning at the end of the school year. The couple got married during that year, I believe, but they had divorced by the time girl would have been starting college.

Another teacher was fired because he left porn videos in his car and some students saw them as they were helping him unload some equipment and bring it into the school.

At another school I worked at, two teachers were quietly let go for inappropriate sexual contact with students (both teachers were female teachers) over the course of 2 years.

I was a teacher for 5 years, in 2 school districts/systems.

    It was a nasty little family secret (not any more) that she humped her music teacher at least once. Whether that was for grades or just the heck of it, I don't know. :(

        ... that many Texas schools have teachers who think sex education includes lab. :)
