The problem is he was in special education. I assume this menas he was mentally challenged and not able to make rational decisions. This would mean she had taken advantage of his disablility.Had it been a male and female student he would have already been charged with rape adn incarcerated. However if both parties were able to make their own decisions there would be nothing wrong with a 26/18 year old relationship. In fact this was quite common only a few generations back.

What is wrong with Berkley?If they are two consenting adults age 26&18 there is nothing wrong with the relationsip. However a teacher/student relationship would find itself strained to say the least, but not immoral.Do they have traffic lights in your town?

It might have been ok a few generations back? Where? At Berkley? Not around here...not if teachers want to keep their jobs. Not only is it unprofessional, but it is a violation of teacher and student relationship (it is crossing that line of trust,respect, law,ethics,morals and etc...all out the window) teachers are in school to educate their students (last time I checked sex ed was out of a book...no hands on experience) not find mates. If one is that hard up for a relationship, she should have been a stripper or prostitute (if it is legal anywhere) and gotten paid for it...but not a teacher...children already have enough of that exposure on TV...which alot of parents are probably thinking of getting rid of about now...I know those I have spoken to are. And you are correct, Jerry Garcia aka Drug dealer...if she were a male teacher (which there have been) he would (and did) get arrested for doing just that.
How many teachers and aides have been arrested so far this year? Out the door...lock them up...and rip up their teaching certificates!

That makes no sense! Why would the neighbors be molesting the teacher?

Still makes no sense to anyone what you posted.Why was the teacher being molested by the neighbors? Why do all of your post always have sexual,deviancy,voyeuristic,pe dophilia connentations or context? You do realize the majority of the U S is Drug Free and Morally Sound and the Greatest Nation on Earth don't you.I will Promote The Legalization of Marijuana and Hemp until Mrs. Garcia lays me away. On my Tombstone will be Marijuana Leaves On one Side It will Read ----LEGALIZE IT--- on the other side-- I Will Give Up My Medication When They Pry It From My Green Sticky Fingers---.

Maybe you should learn how to read...the person above state how he wanted to know where those kind of teachers were when he was in high school (am I going to fast for you?) my reply maybe next door at the neighbors getting molested...anyone can get molested these days...and maybe they never told anyone...and it became ok with them so when their own children were molested not a problem "everyone else is doing it" Wrong...it is against the law. Society took bad behaviors, it seems, and now calls these behaviors part of the times...you must be "square man" if you are not doing it. No, it is not ok...call it what you want...this crap takes people back how many years? Jerry Garcia aka drug dealer...please stop it with your drugs...I promise not to call you "square" infact, I will like you that much more for stopping.

Yes I am making it easier. Easier for people to realize the TRUTH about Marijuana Legalization. You see you have been lassoed,like most dumb sheep Americans, into a thing called FEAR. F-alse E-vidence A-ppearing R-eal.This is why you are cowered behind your locked and bolted doors watching the FOX and CNN News Propoganda Report.If you biked the alley ways and streets I do daily, you would see the real story. It is called Legalized Genocide. And you do not start the Topics on Topixs, you only ignorantly post here.

Maybe because you need to get out more...and realize that there is more happening in this world...probably because of the drug issue (people too stoned to realize what is happening with their chidren) then you'll ever realize...welcome and don't enjoy yourself. These topics which I start are part of our everyday issues...like it or not they are what they are and you are not making it any easier.

This is madness to me. This teenager was 17 when Ms. Grasso had sex with him. He is/was her student. He was in Special Ed. She is recently divorced, with time on her hands. I wonder if she's heard of HARTFORD, I believe there's one or two clubs there with PLENTY of 18 year olds that aren't her students. Or, perhaps a bar, bowling alley, the grocery store??
If she is smart enough to assist in teaching high school students, then she should be smart enough to find someone more LEGALLY available. Not to mention the fact that she bought him alcohol. Budwiser and the backseat of a Blazer, what a great mature awe-inspiring date!! Her poor child, was that even an after thought? She had to know it was not quite right, she should spend some time reflecting on that, perhaps a room with a view. The view of iron bars that is.

Special Education doesn't always mean mental retardation. Special Education students can be students that cause constant discipline issues so teachers and administrators put them into special ed to segregrate them from the rest of the student population to cut down on that student effecting the learning process of others. Either way, 18, 19 or 20, however old he is, as a teacher it is your responsiblity to know your role, and understand you are a Model to students and should honor that and not cross that line. Why ruin your career for a fling? I guess she can only answer if it was worth it or not.

Once again, J.G. posts a link to another website to advocate his personal cause as a habitual user (a.k.a. addict for 35+ years). But if he actually really supported the true cause of legalizing medicinal marijuana use, he wouldn't feel so defensive or waste other people's time defending his own weaknesses or fears of the government "man" holding him down. C'mon Jer, you are a narrow minded hippie-crit. Keep it limited to the real cause and fight for your right to party elsewhere.
