Lately, it seems like every week you hear about another teacher having sex with one of their students. We want to know what you think -- a sign of changing times, increased latency in school regulations or a wider availability of communications (like MySpace and cell phones)? What's causing it? What's with all the teacher-student sex cases?

"Yes a lot of our staff is young yet they are qualified and just because
one teacher turned out bad does not make all of our other young staff
under qualified. I say this because I actually attend McNair High and i
am well aware of my surroundings. Lets not judge by the area or the
actions of 'One' teacher."
Zack, Stockton CA
"McNair is a great school, and Principal Jim Davis does a great job
keeping EVERYTHING in line. Rarely are their fights. Nobody saw this
coming from Oliver."

have been going on. I am hoping students are becoming braver to come
forward. We do need better standards for teachers"

"As my AP Gov. Teacher stated, one case cannot be representative of the population of teacher-student relations."

"Late last decade there was a tremendous need for new teachers. As a
result there were, and still are, young teachers being rushed into the
ranks. Many of which are under qualified to teach the assigned course
material and or the grade level, not to mention that they are of the
same generation and are only a 'FEW' years apart. What did 'THEY'
Proud Eagle, Stockton CA
"I am begging for all of those out there that are judging McNair, don't
let one teacher"s actions set the reputation for McNair. Her actions
were of her own doing and moral corruption, not that of the school."
Makayla, Stockton CA
"She's probably not the only teacher. Other young teachers are 'flirty as well'."
