Professor student dating relationships

So the logic goes, it would be unreasonable to expect a male teacher not to notice whether or not his students are attractive.But noticing is one thing; acting on their impulses in any way on the spectrum from flirting with a student to touching her is quite another.

And professors often aren't unaware of their younger students' charms, either.But entering a romantic relationship with someone who grades your tests and may have a hand in your future success comes with its own set of problems.Too often when I see the word, "teacher" in a headline these days, it quickly is followed by the words, "sex scandal." Almost everyone would agree that teachers who become physically involved with their students are clearly in the wrong.Thanks to social networking, teachers can now communicate with their students through emails, texts and instant messages.Oftentimes, behind the safety of a screen, teachers forget their roles as mentors and figures of authority.
