This policy highlights the risks in sexual or romantic relationships in the Stanford workplace or academic setting between individuals in inherently unequal positions; prohibits certain relationships between teachers and students; and requires recusal from supervision and evaluation and notification in other relationships. Applies to all students, faculty, staff, and others who participate in Stanford programs and activities. There are special risks in any sexual or romantic relationship between individuals in inherently unequal positions, and parties in such a relationship assume those risks. In the university context, such positions include but are not limited to teacher and student, supervisor and employee, senior faculty and junior faculty, mentor and trainee, adviser and advisee, teaching assistant and student, principal investigator and postdoctoral scholar or research assistant, coach and athlete, attending physician and resident or fellow, and individuals who supervise the day-to-day student living environment and their students. Because of the potential for conflict of interest, exploitation, favoritism, and bias, such relationships may undermine the real or perceived integrity of the supervision and evaluation provided. Further, these relationships are often less consensual than the individual whose position confers power or authority believes. In addition, circumstances may change, and conduct that was previously welcome may become unwelcome. Even when both parties have consented at the outset to a sexual or romantic involvement, this past consent does not remove grounds for a charge based upon subsequent unwelcome conduct.

The Washington Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that student age doesn’t matter in teacher-sex cases, even if the student is 18 and considered an adult by other state laws. The case involves Matthew Hirschfelder, a former choir teacher at Hoquiam High School, who had been charged with first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor in An year-old choir member told police she had been involved in a sexual relationship with him.
Hirschfelder, who was 33 at the time, denies any relationship occurred. He asked a lower-court judge to dismiss the case because the girl was not a minor. The judge refused to dismiss the case and encouraged the Court of Appeals to clarify what state law said on the issue. The appeals court ruled in January that the statute was unconstitutionally vague. A few months later, the Legislature clarified the law, saying all sex between school employees and full-time registered students 16 or older is illegal.
The Supreme Court on a vote of reversed the appeals court and said the state law was not unconstitutionally vague. He was surprised by the way the court ruled on unconstitutional vagueness, since the legal standard says a law should be written so a person of common intelligence will understand it.
Teacher and Ex Student Relationship
They not only instruct their pupils but supervise their daily activities and pledge to keep them free from harm. A sexual relationship with a student could prevent a teacher from carrying out their legal duties to protect students from sexual abuse. When it comes to children under age 18, the law and court opinion are unambiguous: minors cannot give consent to sexual conduct, and any such relationship is expressly forbidden.

A student and teacher have a relationship. This is one of the greatest fantasies that every high school student has. We all wondered sometimes about how it would be to date your teacher after high school, and is it legal. Can such relationships succeed, and for how long? There is also a question how long should we wait for it to be publicly acceptable? I will try to answer that question with my own experience.
Can you date your high school teacher after you graduate? You can date your teacher, but it is a tricky thing to do. Viewed from the teacher side, it is certainly unprofessional in many instances.

1.7.2 Consensual Sexual or Romantic Relationships In the Workplace and Educational Setting
British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Teachers should not be prosecuted for having affairs with their sixth formers, a union chief has said. NASUWT general secretary Chris Keates said it was an “anomaly” that a teacher who had sex with a pupil aged over 16 could go on the sex offenders register. She told ITV’s Tonight programme the law was wrong because a teacher could legally enter a relationship with a sixth former at another school. Child protection professionals have criticised her comments.
Teacher Registration and Standards Act (SA), which establishes and maintains with an ex-student, their employer is entitled to consider whether their.
OUR society is averse to teacher-student love affairs. It is considered a forbidden act for teachers to fall for their students. As teachers, they stand in loco parentis as regards their minor wards. It is therefore unthinkable for a teacher, who under the law is a substitute parent, to have amorous feelings towards his or her minor student. A student is likewise both innocent and adventurous and therefore susceptible to abuses and fraud by a teacher who has influence and moral ascendancy over him or her.
Thus, even when a minor student voluntarily enters into a love affair with his or her teacher, consent is disregarded by law and the teacher may be deemed to have committed child abuse as a criminal offense. Sweetheart theory not applicable In complaints for acts of lasciviousness or rape, when there is proof that the victim and the accused are lovers, what operates is the theory that the sexual act was consensual and therefore there is no crime.
This is known as the sweetheart theory. However, in the case of People v. Malto, the Supreme Court ruled that unlike rape and acts of lasciviousness, consent is immaterial in child abuse cases. The mere act of having sexual intercourse or committing lascivious conduct with a child who is subjected to sexual abuse constitutes the offense.
A child should not be deemed to have validly consented to adult sexual activity and to surrender herself or himself in the act of ultimate physical intimacy under the law. In other words, a child is presumed by law to be incapable of giving rational consent to any lascivious act or sexual intercourse. Student as the child The public policy against teacher-student relationships is clearer when the student is a minor, but not when the student is already of majority age.

Institutions tend to either ban student-faculty dating altogether or where a supervisory relationship exists. The ages of the couple — her, 25; him, 71 — are unusually far apart.

Platt has said that she waited until two years after her graduation to ask Mitchell out.

I am 18 and from the UK, and thanks guys, would it go in my favour if I said that now that I have left I am working at the school doing work experience and he helps out in the same department, even though he does not teach the subject? Well your 18, I’m not sure if the laws are the same as in the U. S but here adults 18 and up can date any other adult. But some workplaces forbid it because it not only causes distraction, but also if the relationship goes bad it brings drama to work.
Also would he loose his job seeing as he is a teacher at the school I used to go to? I have spoken to a friend about this and they said it is ethically wrong and would loose their job and wouldn’t be able to get a job again?

The ACT government may consider tightening laws to protect young people from being groomed for sexual relationships by teachers, carers and authority figures in the wake of an investigation into a college English teacher having a sexual relationship with a former student. But it could give no further comment as the investigation into the teacher’s behaviour is still continuing. The directorate informed the girl’s parents that preliminary evidence of inappropriate behaviour was enough to warrant his immediate dismissal.
It is understood he was withdrawn from the college earlier this year once his ongoing relationship was made clear to the directorate. The girl’s parents had a strong suspicion she was in a relationship last year, but it was not until March of this year she admitted she was sleeping with her former teacher.
She turned 18 in February. While they were desperate to keep their family’s name private, the parents wanted to speak out about the need for ACT legislation relating to sexual contact and psychological grooming of students by teachers to be toughened in order to bring the ACT into line with other states and territories. ACT law requires proof of a sexual act taking place in order for a prosecution to succeed while in NSW, the requirement of proof of sexual misconduct has been updated to merely require intent.
