I am sorry, but I think labeling someone as a "victim" if it was not forced sex, is far more damaging to a person.
These boys will now have to deal with the stigma of being "sex abuse victims" for the rest of their lives. Everyone will know.

I totally agree. There is a huge double standard that exists on this topic. Now maybe if the student was 18 it might be a consensual but we still don't want to encourage or condone this behavior! The teacher / student relationship should always be professional.

It is not the same with older men and young girls. Because the young girl is penetrated , there is abuse and therefore it is criminal.
The sexuality of men is different. When a young man gets horny with an older woman it is nature taking its course. He is not being abused.
I'm shocked and amazed how many people think it's ok for these teachers to have sex with underage boys!
Staff - Learners
Under the Sexual Offences Act 2003, it is an offence for anyone in a position of trust to engage in sexual activity (including touching of a sexual nature) with a person under the age of 18 who is in their care. The position of trust definition applies to all teachers and other staff in an educational setting. Such a breach of trust is an arrestable offence, even if the activity and/or relationship is consensual. Anyone successfully convicted under this legislation will be subject to notification requirements and registration under the Sex Offenders Act 1997.
Employees in such a position of trust must not enter into personal relationships with any learner under the age of 18, and must not encourage behaviour on the part of the learner which goes beyond that which could ordinarily be expected from a staff/learner relationship.
Personal relationships between employees and learners over 18 years of age must be disclosed to the College via the employee’s line manager.
These rules will be strictly enforced and failure to comply with them will result in disciplinary action being taken in accordance with the College’s Disciplinary Procedure. Furthermore, in suspected cases of an abuse of a position of trust, the College may report those concerned to the Police.

People are saying that if it was done with 'consent' then its all okay???
Imagine the impact on a child's social life? Imagine how it might change the child's development? Technically people are saying it's okay to molest children?!
Picture yourself one day sitting with your son to find out that the same teacher thats been marking the boy's maths home work has also been sleeping with him!
This is more than just two people having sex - this will change your child's ENTIRE out look on life. They will think its professionally normal to do these kinds of things! They may interpret that its okay to have sex with under age people! They may find relationships difficult after their first partner was their school teacher. Their entire views on sex will be influenced by this one lady you left your son with to teach mathematics. A teacher who is taking advantage of your son's hyper sexed predicament for their own benefit.
All joking aside, think about what you're saying! 13 year olds sometimes have sex. They are not ready to have children. Letting them run around and go nuts is not the smart choice. It's not up to some school teacher to undermine parenting by sleeping with your child.
Sorry for the rant but I'm just surprised. I'm no expert on this subject but as far as I know there are a great many negative effects such an experience can have on a child regardless of desire or gender.
