Teacher dating student law
Teachers are one of the chief influences during a person’s formative years.
Very often they leave deep imprints of their knowledge, humanity and tolerance on the budding minds of the students.
Potential for distrust If you are going to have a relationship with your former teacher, make sure that there is no room for jealousy and suspicion.

Questions like how a particular student performed or what other teachers thought about some other student may put your partner in a difficult situation.
He/she may not welcome your intrusive questions which may even threaten to compromise principles of confidentiality and professional ethics.
Be aware of the law Like medicine, teaching is seen more of a vocation than a profession.
Hence it is guided by a code of ethics which may however vary from one society and country to another.
In most developed societies including United States, there are not legal barriers on a person wishing to date a former teacher, provided both are above the age of majority and there is no longer any continuation of the teacher-student relationship between the two.
