Marisa Cazanave, 33, a married teacher at the upmarket Brooklyn Technical high school has left her job after being found to have exchanged compromising messages with a teenaged male student.

Ms Cazanave, who was in charge of choral training, has denied inappropriate conduct and will not face criminal charges.

An investigation found that she and the boy spoke 145 times on the pone between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.

    While an entrance exam is required for admission to Brooklyn Tech, more than three-quarters of the student enrollment is made up of minority students. It is a public (i.e. state school in the UK) school. Selective, but hardly upmarket.

    So a male adult bass teacher hitting on teenagers and young adults is a “molester” but a female adult teacher hitting on a teenager is sacrificing all “for love”? Explain the distinction.
