Dating your teacher college

There are countless reasons why it’s hard for college students to meet new people.

For example, the creators of Date My first got their idea for the site after their female friends complained that they were spending most of their time with other students enrolled in the school of social work, most of whom were women.

Chief Justice Sears wrote: But the General Assembly did not specifically bar a consent defense when it enacted the state law making it a crime for a teacher to have sex with a student enrolled in school.

There are times where the mind just can’t comprehend some of the news it comes across… This past Monday the Georgia Supreme Court ruled in a 5-to-2 decision that it was legal for teachers to have sexual contact with a student so long as they were over the state’s age of consent, which is 16-years-old.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the case came before the court on the appeal of a conviction of Melissa Lee Chase after she was not allowed to present a defense where she would have said the student she had sex with, who was over 16-years-old, was consensual to the situation.

Teachers have power over students, which undercuts the notion that consent can be given freely; we control their lives, which means it's not fair to the individual student, or to the other students in the class; it's an abuse of the teacher's power, and compromises both the real and perceived fairness of that student's grades and of any overall curve in the class. Obviously, the younger the student, the worse the injury, but abuse of power is about power, not age.

Besides, for purposes of their relationships with teachers, high school seniors, even if they are 18, are still kids, as the legislature clearly concluded, and prosecutors are not free to second guess them. Because there I was, all by myself, in arguing that Mc Elhenney should be subject to felony charges.
