When police interviewed the unnamed student, he said Smith, 42, had seductively placed a school chair in front of the classroom after the tardy bell rang. Music began to play – from some undisclosed source – and several students in the class began yelling raucously that the birthday boy should sit down in the chair.
Once the kid sat down, the fortysomething teacher gave him what was perhaps his first full-contact lap dance. According to a police report, Smith did the thing where she turned around and swiveled her butt on the middle school student. She rubbed her hands all over his body. She also got down on her knees and stuck her head between the boy’s legs.
It’s not clear if the kid enjoyed the lap dance. However, he admitted that he did slap Smith’s ass a couple times.

I had several teachers I wouldn't have minded lap dances from.
Yeah, she is stupid. That's obviously not acceptable behavior from a teacher, but it's a victimless crime in my opinion. Not anything to get worked up over anyway.
Was she hot?
That's very important in determining the degree of the offense.
Now, forgive me if I seem a little ignorant, but a lap dance does not strike me as the first gift that springs to mind, when a teacher considers the celebration of a students birthday. -

Obviously things like this are not acceptable. However, with that said, I also don't see why it is being blown out of proportion. Is it really something that should ruin someone's life? It is not like she actually had a sexual relationship with the student, and apparently the student was not traumatized or anything, so who exactly is the victim? I am not saying it is acceptable, and something probably needs to be done. However I think cooler heads should prevail, and that the woman should not have the book thrown at her.
I would be willing to bet that this teacher would be on her best behavior for the rest of her career, if she is ever allowed to teach again, and at the end of the day if nobody was hurt, should people really be outraged? Is it that big of a deal? Again, I am not condoning it, just stating the simple fact that it is kind of humorous, since it was not actually statutory rape or anything like that. I think the woman simply made a bad decision, and I just hope her life and career are not ruined by that decision.
You say in one breathe it is not acceptable but then try and justify it? It is not acceptable behavior in any classroom . Her life will not be ruined, and she should lose her teaching job forever. It was the teacher's decision to do it...suffer the consequences.
I wouldn't want her teaching in any school my child is at.
