As I read this article, I was reminded of at least 4 teachers - from Junior High through High School - who my fellow students and I, were aware of having questionable relationships with their students. 2 other teachers that we were not aware of having contact with students, ended up marrying former students after these students had graduated. All but one were men... all were heterosexual. I only know of one of these teachers who ended up resigning because of their reported conduct (and I can't recall if the man ever was prosecuted).
I was struck by the comment in this article..."Students in America's schools are groped. They're raped. They're pursued, seduced and think they're in love." The reason why is because I was aware of at least 2 of these teachers who were constantly flirted with by several female students who insisted they were in love with the teacher. However, I do not give any leniency to any teacher who succumbs to a student's flirting.
Sexual misconduct plagues U.S. schools

One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
