The duty of an educator is to inspire young minds to effect the world positively. A high level of trust is placed in teachers. But when teachers use their authority to sexually abuse children, they, the principal and the school are responsible and should be held accountable.
In a teacher-student relationship there will always be an imbalance of power. For this reason, special laws are set in place to protect students from sexual abuse. It is illegal for an educator to have a sexual relationship with a student. Schools are mandated to report any incidents concerning the sexual abuse of a student by a teacher.
