    Let this be treated and commented in a manner that is SAFE for ALL involved.
    You know what I mean?

    “of sexual involvement with students”

    coercing teenagers to have sex with one is not a sexual “involvement”,

    call it by its real name, as the case may be:

    sexual “abuse”,
    sexual “unwanted advances”,
    sexual “pressure”,
    sexual “harassment”,
    sexual “hostile environment”;
    sexual “grooming”,
    sexual “assault” …

    “Involvement” is what you get when two 40-year-old-married-with-children co-workers decide to have an extra-marital fling
