A woman who was named Essex County, N.J.’s “Teacher of the Year” in 2011 has been suspended from her job after being accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student.

US West Orange High School teacher Erica DePalo, 33, of Montclair, was charged Friday with first-degree aggravated sexual assault, second-degree sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office announced.

“aggravated sexual assault”, is that like “legitimate rape”?

Where is NOW today?

There is something very wrong with people these days. It is as if something is making the world more and more crazy.

Why would an adult ever, EVER, even think of a child in a sexual manner?

Going out on a limb here but most “children” of 15 have already gone advanced through puberty and don’t exactly look like small children anymore if you get my drift.

In fact most girls are hitting puberty by age 9 when in my day it was about age 11.

Legally they are not adults but their bodies are too advanced for their own good.

I expects adults to have good judgement, self-control and patience. It is not too much to ask.

I’d have to vote guilty on this also. I am married to a teacher (retired). I cannot imagine her being so unprofessional as to do anything like this. It really reeks of unprofessionalism. It’s also against the law. Sad.

“Why would an adult ever, EVER, even think of a child in a sexual manner?”

So they can avoid adult relationships while playing adult; a more compliant toy for them...

No it's not. But things like this happen all too often.

Thank God we took our eldest out of public school after his first semester of kindergarten. We started home schooling then (ten years ago), and have never looked back.

The frequency of these stories of teachers having sex with their students convinces me that one of my four kids would have probably encountered this, if we hadn’t.

This is a national disgrace, and is worthy of a congressional investigation, in my opinion.

We know that there's a certain small element of any population that is going to have that particular mental aberration, but the frequency of such incidents among public school teachers is far above the statistical average for any narrowly defined group, in my opinion.

I think it's high time that Congress began looking into this. The public schools have become virtual sexual predator zones.

It's impractical to simply abolish the public schools all at once. It'll take a weaning off process to accomplish a complete disconnection of the government from primary education. I think it could be done, but that's a bigger conversation.

“aggravated sexual assault”, is that like “legitimate rape”?

Whoopi says that is not "rape,rape".

I watched the video.

That woman has the strangest chin I’ve ever seen.

It’s like her chinbone is independently alive or something.

Change the “do”, go for a complete makeover, and
plead it down to ‘assault with a friendly weapon’.

Next case, baliff.

Aggravated? Either the prosecutor doesn’t know what that means, or just doesn’t give a ——.

We took ours out in the 4th and 2nd grade respectively. They’re both adults now. My son hears these stories and looks at me sideways like he’s plotting his revenge. I’m worried.

Everyone who says that we should privatize all education should be forced to spend 2 years in a country without public education. They do exist, but you won’t find a single one with an illiteracy rate that isn’t heartbreaking.

I expect it from congressmen and Judges, even the president, but lately I am disappointed a lot.
