DO YOU AGREE WITH Teacher to Student and vice versa "love relationship"?
June 3, 2007 9:16pm CST
Now a days, we cannot deny the fact that teachers are also human that will fall in love with his/het student. Others are accepting this scenario but some are awkward to say something or have some comments on this. My stand is that, teachers and students should know their gaps/limitations...this is to broad right? What do you think about this?

For me its ok as long as the student is at the right age and as long as they love each other its just fine. Nowadays people are openminded and liberal about those kind of situations, yes teachers are still human. They also have the right to love and be loved in return for whoever he/she wants to love.

Usually the age gap between a teacher and his/her student (especially in secondary or high school) is significantly wide. I think most love relationship between teacher and student is borne out of infatuation, and that's different from real love. In any case, having such relationships in school is not appropriate and should not be encouraged. For one, getting into any serious relationship at this age will affect a student's concentration on study, as well as the teacher's concentration to teach in the class where the student belongs. Furthermore, it will bound to create suspicion that the teacher will show favour to the student in terms of say test or exam marks. There is a parallel between this and an employee who falls in love with his/her superior, where promotions and staff gradings are concerned. And if the teacher and student are seen inside or outside school to be behaving intimately, this behavious will be frowned upon by the school authorities, because people will bound to talk and parents will complain to the school if they hear about this. So I would say there are many factors against student-teacher relationships in school. If they are really in love and suitable (age-wise) for each other, then this relationship, I feel, should be developed only after the student has graduated and left the school.

Well first it would have to be a close age gap you can't have a teacher putting the moves on a child still in high school as I don't agree with this but if it was in college and the age gap wasn't that bad then I could see how this could happen . But would still feel that they should keep the relationship as friends until the student was no longer in the classroom by the teacher . They would still have to keep this proffesional .
