    As a teacher myself, I think you need to have certain standards. I would never date or sleep with a single parent from the class I was teaching. I know a couple of my teacher friends who have dated parents from the school they were teaching at, but they were not parents of the children in their classes. ifykwim.
    A lot of teachers feel the need to keep their school and private life separate, which is what I try to do.

    If the parents child is in that teachers class then I think it would be a conflict of interest. If the child isnt in that teachers class then I dont really see the issue, but I do think it could be slight conflict of interest when it comes to lunch/recess and if the teacher was on duty IYWKIM.

My best friends father decided the PE teacher shouldnt be fired as my BF knew EXACTLY what she was doing. The H.E teacher found out and had a punch up with my best friend on school grounds... and SHE got fired!!!


    I dont think i would be bothered with a teacher sleeping with a parent as long as they didnt bring they're personal dramas to the classroom/school grounds

    OP considering I'm in that exact position where really I am on the dating scene ... I know single mother & a teacher ... That has sex outside of a relationship (shame on me).

    Personally I would never have a relationship or sex with any parent in my class. However if I was to meet someone socially outside of school - say at a BBQ or a pub ... And their child happened to go to my school. I'd be fine with it. Because at the end if the day I'm a professional.

    I've taught a few of my friends kids and they have never received any kind of special treatment. Even call me by my first name outside of school but not when at school. There's a strict teacher student line drawn and I don't see an issue.

    I don't think they should be sleeping with parents that they personally teach.

    I don't know; it's like sleeping with colleagues in that there is potential for conflict.

    Do schools have policies about it?

    I honestly don't know. I've known of a deputy that dated a parent though. I really have no idea. I've never looked into it as it is not something I would intentionally seek. I am very professional at work so the situation of knowing a parent is from my school has never been an issue. I'd certainly never start a relationship on the school grounds. It would have to be coincidental - IYKWIM??

    I don't have an issue with 2 single people hooking up. Like I said in the other thread, if a parent was making her way through the school staff then I would distance myself from that person and possibly change dd's school. If it was 1 teacher sleeping with a whole lot of parents I would feel very uncomfortable with that and request my child never be in that person's class. I see that as highly unprofessional. If it is 1 teacher who hooks up with 1 parent I have no issue with that. People don't have to agree, but my stance is pretty clear.
