Question: Can you date your own teacher?

A relationship between a student and a teacher should be acceptable as long as they maintain their professionalism within the school. A persons profession shouldnt determine who theyre allowed to love and express their feelings for. He or she might want to start dating, but students shouldnt want to date a teacher.

Are you allowed to date your teacher?

Despite the legal definition of an adult as someone “18 and older,” state courts have held that sexual relationships between students and teachers are against the law. In April 2012, California lawmakers rejected Assembly Bill 1861, a bill that would have made it a felony for teachers to date their students.
