Professor student dating illegal
But it shouldn’t come as any surprise that dating a TA while still enrolled in the course is deemed “inappropriate” by NYU’s Faculty Handbook.
A person who is a member of the Teacher Retirement System and is convicted of certain felonies that involve sexual abuse of a student or minor will be ineligible to receive a service retirement annuity from the retirement system.
A school district must complete an investigation into allegations of educator misconduct, even if the educator resigns from the school district.
Unlike a professor’s lecture, a TA’s recitation involves discussion and gradual acquaintanceship.
All of this makes them much more likely candidates for dating and relationships.
It also is a felony for any school district employee to engage in a sexual relationship with a student, even if that student is of the legal age of consent.
