California’s proposed legislation criminalizing student-teacher dating dies in Assembly committee

The Associated Press reported in the San Francisco Chronicle that the California Assembly’s Committee on Public Safety rejected AB1861, a bill that would have made it a felony for teachers to date their students. Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen, who sponsored the bill, criticized the committee’s vote, saying its members had sided with “predators and union bosses” instead of protecting students.

this is very unfortunate in my opinion. There needs to be more protection both for the students and just as important for the parents of the students.
