...or are teachers crazier now than they were when I was in high school. There was talk of sex between teachers and students, but never anything like this. At least, I don't think the band teacher was into bondage. This headline: Police found bondage videos at home of accused teacher caught my eye. Apparently this creep did these things in class, during school hours. "Officials describing the alleged abuse in the schools said sometimes Sperlik spent the entire class period sexually abusing his 9- to 14-year-old students, sometimes asking them to duct-tape themselves" What amazes me is how long it took everyone to catch on that his bizarre antics weren't just progressive teaching methods.
