Both of my Paternal Grandparents were school teachers. I do not know the rules about dating but she was not allowed to be married and teach. She had to leave her job when she married my Grandfather. I suspect the reason it did not a negative effect is the fact someone would never think of such a thing. And they knew everyone in society would turn on them. But consider our society today, look at the sycophants cheering Michael Jackson every day. You would think they would at least shut their mouths for prudence sake.

I've read various codes of conduct for public school teachers from around 100 years ago; female teachers had to be single (the inference was that a married woman would be too busy with her household duties to give teaching the time it needed), could not date or be seen in the company of a man, had to be of good character. A male teacher could not frequent places like bars or card parlors, gamble, and IIRC, drinking was taboo. There were other stipulations, but the basic standard was that a teacher had to be of very high moral character in order to teach children.
Were it only so today.
