Does your childs school have the kids call thier teachers by their first name, or Mr and Miss/es?
Do you think it makes a difference as to what name /title a teacher uses? In my sons high school there are younger teachers, maybe only 10 years or so older than him, should he address them as Mr/ Miss as well?
I ask this because in my sisters school district, at the elementry and middle school, they have the students call the teachers by their first name.

My 12 y/o sister goes to a very progressive charter school and all the teachers are addressed as "Teacher Lisa" "Teacher Tom" "Maestra Maria" (the Spanish teacher) etc. She has gone to this school since kindergarten & it's the only way she's done it. Unless, such as in my sisters case, that is the school policy I think it's inappropriate to call teachers by anything other than Mrs, Mr, Miss, etc especially due to an age difference between teacher & student. I would prefer very clear boundaries, especially with so many creeps befriending thier students to seduce them.
