    More people not reading the article? It sounds like one idiot did one dumb thing and now we get to broad brush a whole bunch of people. Nice. It's not like we expect conservatives to be intellectually or morally consistent, right?

    The problem is the number of occasions when, and the variety of circumstances under which just "one idiot did one dumb thing."
    There is also the matter of the environment which makes it seem (to the person concerned) that the person can act like that with impunity.

    The incident is being investigated by the board. Most boards take child safety and therefore custody extremely seriously. This is likely a fireable offense.

    Not really. You can't just fire people in NZ. The best the School Board could do is choose not to renew the teacher's contract at the end of the year.

    The teacher might get censured by the Education Council, but is hardly likely to lose their registration over this.

    Sounds like the US. As one teacher once told me, the only two ways to lose your job are to do something inappropriate with a kid or do something inappropriate with money.
