Kelsey Rebekah Allen had a three month sexual relationship with a male student.

This news story seems to be missing the words predator, grooming.

It did however have the words ‘very bright and intelligent young woman’. Also had Kelsey was under stress when the relationship happerned.

Did not have a space for comments nor did it have the name of the reporter.

Please don’t get me wrong. I accept teachers have mutual sex with students. It’s just the way the unknown reporter makes out it was a mistake from a very bright and intelligent young woman and if it were a male teacher then it is called a grooming predator.

Seems to make the whole thing the male students fault.

No court trial, no threat of jail time.

    Sex with students is always morally wrong, and a fundamental breach of trust. However, research shows that women receive more lenient treatment from the courts. It is just a scam

    Both of these female predators would have been all over the 6 oclock news if they were male. I’ve not seen a thing.

    It is not just the breach of trust in the student teacher relationship. It is very damaging to the school itself.

    It is, I’ve been told first hand, a devastating and embarrassing experience for a principal to have to deal with, and it puts the other teachers on the back foot with the students.

    It is not something new. In the 1970s these women would have been dealt with behind closed doors, and moved on either, to another school, or out the door depending on the circumstances.

    What has changed is the manner in which it is dealt with, and the public naming and shaming.

    It would be interesting to see the statistics on the rate of offending, and how much they have increased.

    To me this goes hand and hand with the recent ‘Gay Marriage’ debate on this site, where I made the point that we’ve shifted the emphasis in society from reproduction to sex.

    to me the teacher shouldnt have encouraged a relationship. but also the relationship was between two legal aged people,which if it hadnt happened at school would have been perfectly ok.

    Invariably these links seem to disappear but to my surprise the item in this post can be accessed. Below is the more recent text referred to in the previous comment.

    A teacher who had sex with one of her students last year is guilty of serious misconduct and can no longer teach, the Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal says.

    The teacher and student were at Hastings Boys’ High School.

    The tribunal said the woman taught English at a boys’ school and had a sexual relationship with one of her Year 12 students, then aged 16.

    It said the school’s principal discovered the relationship when he received screen-shots of text messages between the pair in June last year.

    “The principal met with Teacher E the same day, showed her the texts and outlined his concern that the respondent and Student A were in a sexual relationship. Teacher E admitted that she had been in a sexual relationship with Student A, that she was “stupid” and that she “had let everyone down,” the tribunal’s report said.

    Later that day the student also confirmed the relationship.

    The tribunal’s finding says the teacher was immediately stood down and the school made a mandatory report to the Education Council.

    The teacher agreed not to teach while the complaint was investigated and later resigned.

    “She candidly admitted the nature of her relationship with Student A and did not resist the conclusion that cancellation of her registration to teach is inevitable,” the report said.

    The tribunal said teachers having sex with a student at the school in which they teach is serious misconduct at a high level.

    It cancelled the woman’s teacher registration and ordered her to pay costs of $2226.

    The tribunal suppressed the names of the woman and the student. However, it did not suppress the name of the school, Hasting Boys’ High School, because it had already been named in media coverage when the case first came to light.
