It’s not always the wrong time to whip out the cliches. “Where was she when I was in high school,” comes to mind.

Exceedingly attractive and bikini photo posting Rocky Mount Prep School math teacher Erin McAuliffe, 25, was arrested for having sexual relationships with three students at the high school. This may be a new record. Dubious in distinction, depending on what role you played in the scandal.

Local North Carolina authorities were notified back in May of suspicions that McAuliffe was fraternizing with the customers, which is especially bad if you’re a teacher and your customers are teenaged students in your care. Yesterday, she was arrested by those same authorities and charged with┬áthree counts of sexual activity with a student and one count of indecent liberties with a minor. It’s unclear if three different boys have been named, though the local scuttlebutt indicates there were three separate teens involved with Math teacher McAuliffe.

Either McAuliffe had an ingenious plan to up her RateMyTeachers.com score or she was a relatively young woman completely out of control. Liaisons with one male student have proved trick enough for the horny lady offenders. Presume some of them are getting away with it currently, but many others have been busted. The tight circle of secrecy helps somewhat in that regard. But you start talking about multiples boys and you’ve exponentially increased your chances of everything from Snapchat bragging to boys lavatory gossip. It’s skydiving without a parachute. Which I’m told is crazy fun, until the landing.

McAuliffe is not so unique anymore in being an attractive young math teacher. Anybody over forty will tell you those simply never existed before, ever. Now young good looking female teachers in the sciences are becoming more commonplace. As is their list of names on this site after being arrested for sex with students. There’s something demographically, socially, morally, and professionally profound taking place at our nation’s high schools leading to this growing wave of illicit intercourse. Nobody seems willing to discuss it plainly. That’s probably a decent indicator it’s not going away any time soon. Stop cheering so loudly, high school boys. This is supposed to be serious.
