Good points. Obviously that would be based on the age of the student. Seems to me you're discussing different things.

What position of power are you talking about? Power in this case is in the hands of the "student"!! The Politically Correct ideology does not understand the use of power. The power to destroy is the power to control! The student has all the power. In this society. In another society perhaps not but here and now they do!
Take advantage? Who is taking advantage of whom?

Thanks for clarifying.

I completely disagree with you. I don't consider a teacher in a sexual relationship with a student as showing "favoritism," "mentoring," or giving that student an "unfair advantage." The words I would use are criminal, using a position of power to take advantage of a minor, and just plain despicable.

We do over react. While there are good reasons against such favoritism as it inhibits the learning process as one is getting mentoring that is not available to the rest of the class. That represents what could be a unfair advantage. However outside of the classroom in real life it does happen that allows some individuals a leg up over their competition.
>>Are you saying that we should expect these kinds of things happening (teacher/student sexual relationships) because they are in close proximity?<<<<
Yes I am *
We are human beings not robots!! We must expect human responses. To deny our humanity for some ideology is not logical nor wise!

Are you saying that we should expect these kinds of things happening (teacher/student sexual relationships) because they are in close proximity? And if you are saying that, are you saying that you think it is okay? As you can tell, I'm confused by your post.

This has always gone on. It is that in today's no privacy time it is more "outed" than before. We have a problem with nature, People will become close because of the fact they see each other almost every day. At work is the place most of us now spend our time (in the US). So it should not be surprising. Our society reacts so violently that rational thought is run over.
