Why Do Female Teachers Sleep with Their Male Students

  • Print

This is Megan Garland.

The 28 year old Messmer High School teacher is accused of having sexual contact with at least two Messmer students.

Earlier this week she was allegedly caught performing oral sex on a 14 year old student in parked car outside Destiny High School in Milwaukee.  A couple of days ago another young man came forward to say that he was also assaulted.

Why do teachers do this?  Are they power hungry or just desperately lonely?  Is it mental illness or sickeningly calculated?

Psychotherapist and author Mary Jo Rapini joined us on WIsconsin's Afternoon News to discuss it.

Rapini has also written extensively on this.  You can check that out here.
