Rules on teachers dating parents

The child is no longer in the teacher's class, but was last year. It's not like a doctor dating a patient, after all.

Both the teacher and the parent are single but they met whilst the child was in the teacher's class. If favouritism were shown to the child as a result, there might be cause for concern, but otherwise they should be left to get on with their lives without outside interference or just plain nosiness. This was asked on a forum for teachers and there were a few responses along the lines of absolutely not, very unprofessional etc.

As I said, people even teach their own children somethims, so what is the problem? To think most parents don't know that rearfacing DCs is safer?

Teachers also must avoid being unduly influenced by parents and other stakeholders when it comes to students' grades or other school-related matters.

Stacy Zeiger began writing in 2000 for "Suburban News Publication" in Ohio and has expanded to teaching writing as an eighth grade English teacher.

I can't see it would be a problem..maybe it's considered a novelty did that comedy programme about the woman who worked in a travel agent and whose husband had left her have it as a theme and it was thought lovably quirky?

For single parents, dating your child's teacher can seem like a fun and impulsive idea.
