Laws about dating teachers
If they had gotten together right after graduation I would guess there had been something going on the whole time and that's sketchy. If one of those teachers ended up dating someone I had gone to school with it wouldn't be a big deal. I've known some pedo-bears who've dated high school students. What kind of person finds a teenager emotionally attractive? Now if a teacher was repetitively dating students that "just turned 18" that I would completely judge.In the UK, by law a teacher cannot date a current student of any age and cannot date an ex-student below 18 (mandatory education finishes at 16). I do have a friend who dated someone who was a student at the rival school of where he student taught, after they had both finished. They were from small town Midwest, and some of the locals tried to launch a criminal investigation. I know several people who have had relationships across the lines in college. When I was 16-18, I dated someone who was 25-27 during the course of the relationship. Principal of one of my old schools had been a girl's coach and high school teacher.It’s unbelievable that I’m finally home after 14 months.It’s awesome to be home with my family and friends.” Prior to his court case and conviction, Dixon had been offered a full football scholarship at Vanderbilt University, which was revoked after his arrest.A two-year age difference isn’t particularly alarming, and dating is fairly standard at that age.
In an interview after his release, Dixon told The Oprah Show, “Freedom is great.As a student teacher, I can only give my two cents; but I agree it's a bit weird, and for me it would have to depend on how ex- of a student we are talking. I know several and I've been invited to baby showers and all sorts of things. Even when they're married and have more kids than I do, it just seems weird to consider them adults. However, if a educator and a former student can have a mutual romantic relationship that results in marriage and maybe even children then more power to them.
