Every day there are new reports of teachers caught engaging in sexual affairs with their students. And these are only the ones the have been caught!
I want a message sent loud and clear to the teaching fraternity that this kind of behaviour is extremely serious and wont be tolerated. I want mandatory minimum sentences for teachers that are found to be engaging in sexual relationships with their students. Even if they are consensual and even if they are no longer considered a minor. It is abhorrent and should be dealt with accordingly.
But it was love!
It was consensual!
It was just an innocent fling!
No excuses! Teachers have a responsibility to act with dignity and common sense.
