    ... you should have sufficient supervision to prevent teachers from having sex in their own offices with anyone.

      Supervision is not the answer. Some students need privacy with trusted teachers to discuss personal issues. Having the space for that is of vital importance to society.

      So is not having teachers have sex with students. But supervision is not the answer. Instead, what we need is severe penalties. Basically sex with a student under 16 should carry the most severe penalty short of a death sentence. Sex with a student between 16 and 18 should have a minimum 10 year sentence.

        an insensitive jerk.  And I'm being polite.  So a suicide attempt is always made immediately, not after a person has struggled to put the incident behind them?  Sorry Adam, you are so wrong.  I hope nothing horrific ever happens to you, you sound like the person who told my friend who lost a child to " get over it already, its been years"!

      •  I agree supervision is not enough (0+ / 0-)

        Teachers should not have sex with their students. Period.

        If the student is underage, the teacher should be fired and sent to jail.

        If the student is of age, the teacher should be fired.

        Why should the school have to expend resources baby sitting an adult?
