Not Hot For Teacher

Teacher repeatedly propositions her 16-year-old student. The boy rebuffs the crude advances, but warns that unless she gives him and a buddy straight A's he'll rat her out to the authorities. That was part of the lesson plan in Judith Christensen's French class, according to these Wisconsin police reports released after the 44-year-old woman pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of contributing to the boy's truancy. Seems that Christensen, who's agreed to stop teaching in Wisconsin, became interested in the student on Valentine's Day 1999 when he wrote a poem about women's breasts (apparently as part of a class assignment). Geez, home schooling looks better and better. (7 pages)
