Vh1 teacher dating students
Ultimately, the couple stood the test of time against fierce criticism, prison sentences and questions of moral turpitude, yet it did not make their affair appropriate.At the time, he was too young (legally under-aged) and she was his teacher (inappropriate behavior).
However, a teacher is in a position of authority, to abuse that power by initiating or allowing the student to initiate a romantic relationship is inappropriate behavior.
It could also lead to the teacher's dismissal because most universities have a code of conduct that both students and professors are expected to follow.
For the teacher or student, who is seeking a long-term relationship, waiting until the student and teacher relationship is over before kindling a romance is a good way to ensure a long-term successful relationship.
An important distinction should be noted when considering any variation of the student and teacher romantic relationship.
