    The trouble with teaching is children. Lies hurt! Being beautiful does not help nor does being handsome help!

    Sex is about Process of Procreation, and anything else which does not have the potential of producing a child, is not sex under God.

  • Leonard NII BOYE Mettle

    If there is no sexual EntryCourse/Intercourse, meaning penis entry into Virginia, then there is no sex.

    The true story made headlines in 1988 when a teacher in Texas was accused of having sex with a student, who later committed suicide. According to court records, Lou Ann Hogan had an inappropriate relationship with Chad Cadenhead. However, a jury found the San Antonio teacher not guilty.

      +Elena Nash Actually, I'm a linguistics professor. Trust me when I say that having to use prescriptive grammar 8 hours a day can be taxing. Thus, after class I prefer descriptive. On a platform, such as TVclip where prescriptive grammar rules don't matter as much, I like to cut loose. Quite frankly, academic English isn't the correct register for this type of forum anyway. There's only so much I can handle. I have to rebel somehow. Have a great Sunday.

      Dear Swim🏊 Finn🐟,
      I mean no offense, though as a teacher, you should know that you never start a sentence with the CONJUNCTIVE word as in "But", except in creative and\or academic writing as in using poetic/creative license.
      Your sentence might have flowed better had you said something like,
      "I would have been fired pretty fast, although, I can see how she got into trouble."
      ... just a bit of trivializing that you can throw out at your next Trivia Party....just joking 👄.

    at the very least, this woman was guilty of incredibly poor judgement.
    also, there is a possibility accusations were true: in the years since there have been lots of these abuse cases, some even woman on girl.
    trial outcome might have been very different with same testimony
    if held 20 or more years later.

    Let's be honest here, if this had been a male teacher with a female student- no matter how innocent he was, he wouldn't stand a chance. Women are never thought of as aggressors, when they can very well be. It happens all the time that women seduce men and even good family men end up cheating on their wives. Not that that is an excuse, but it goes both ways.

    Why would she return to teaching after being attacked by everyone?

    Paulette was only trying to help Kipp she never slept with him and knew the boundaries. You can tell Paulette enjoyed teaching and only wanted to help the Students. Its amazing how her husband stood by her side true love! The reason why Kipp killed himself because he kept getting rejected by family and friends and the girls did'nt like him that could explain his behavior because he wanted to prove it to everyone. Look at the way his friends were treating him SMH and then he had nothing to prove to his parents and on top of that he was adopted. So he never knew his real parents??? It is very important to be involved with your kids it was a good thing that Paulette was reaching out Kipp just needed somebody to talk to. The people to blame for this would be Kipps parents, and friends not Paulette nowadays theirs very few Teachers like Paulette who actually care about students.

    It’s always the woman’s fault. Dressing too provocative, being TOO nice, always something. While I understand even grown ass men mistake a woman’s kindness for some kind of come on, it still isn’t right that these women’s lives become ruined. Us lady’s know how this is. Happens in a work environment a lot. If she’s attractive it puts an even bigger target on her back. While everyone will acknowledge the man did something wrong all the blame falls on the woman’s shoulders because she was the ‘slut’ that let it happen. Women can tell a guy over n over nicely but they will continue their behavior. Instead of chastising her we should be teaching men that a woman’s kindness is in’s no way an open invitation and to be aware and respect boundaries. Why don’t we correct the men’s behavior instead of blaming a woman.
