Should teachers who have sex with their students be punished?
A lot of young school-going girls get into sexual relationships with their teachers, and that is wrong on many levels. Premarital sex with a minor is bad enough but that involving a teacher is worse because teachers occupy a position of authority. They command and it is done so it is not clear how teacher-pupil sex can be consensual. If it is not consentual, is it statutory rape? So, should teachers who sleep with their students be punished? If yes, what’s the appropriate punishment?
