Wake up teachers

Nowadays, teachers never behave like teachers. Many teachers are showing very bad examples, no wonder students also losing their direction. If this trend continue, the world will become more horrible faster than ever.
The moral values nowadays are equal to unused rubbishes. A former secondary school teacher was Friday jailed 10 months for having consensual sex with one of his students who was under age.

The 25-year-old teacher cannot be named to protect the 16-year-old girl's identity.

The slim, bespectacled man was the co-form teacher of the girl who was then 15 years old. They had exchanged phone numbers early last year when he was asked to find out why she had been skipping school.

Court documents showed that they later entered into a relationship and had sex in a Woodlands flat in May and June last year.

The incident was revealed when a photograph of both of them was found in the girl's mobile phone by one of her classmates, and later shown to the school principal.

A psychiatric assessment of the former teacher showed that he had "confused his role as a teacher with that of a confidant and friend because he was an inexperienced teacher without proper guidance."

He could have been jailed up to 10 years, fined or both.
