Laws about students and teachers dating Where can i broadcast my webcam over the internet adult
A teacher keeping their job would be the only issue.
I'm working as an English teacher in Japan right now, and I have to say that a teacher having a relationship with a student is just as frowned upon here as it is in America, even if the student is above the age of consent.
It's a particularly easy question where the state, in this case Texas, has passed a simple and straightforward law that makes it a crime, without regard to the age or gender of the student. But when the bill came to the floor of the house, it was amended, and the age provision was dropped.
If he had not been a student, he would have been considered a consenting adult. When the Texas law was originally drafted, it was limited to students 17 years of age and under.
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.

Student/teacher happens a lot in real life, especially in North America. it is only a "thing" here in the US when it's found out, but teacher/student stuff happens every day and I remember when I was in school, hearing rumors that it happened.
The following was included in TCTA's 2016-17 Survival Guide, the ultimate reference tool for Texas educators, and is current as of September 2016 but is subject to change.
Should it be a crime for a public school teacher to have sex with one of her students? I felt like if we didn't do that, we just virtually made it open season on students that are 18-years-old." Most teachers don't need a criminal law to tell us that it's wrong to have sex with our students no matter how old they are (mine are in their 20's and 30's, and it's still wrong).
