A spokesman for Bradford Council, which ran the school at the time of Mrs Nazam-Khan's relationship with the pupil, said: “Both the school and the authority take our responsibilities to our young people very seriously.Recommending that she should be banned from teaching for life, the National College for Teaching & Leadership said Mrs Nazam-Khan had engaged in a “sexually motivated” relationship with the pupil, who turned 18 during the course of the relationship, and that it had had a “detrimental impact” on him.The findings continued: “Furthermore, the panel do not consider that Mrs Nazam-Khan has shown any remorse for her actions and the impact upon the pupil.She admitted to having an inappropriate relationship with a pupil at a disciplinary meeting and was dismissed from the school.

But administrators, professors and students alike say that the issue of faculty-student dating is a complex one.
A more stringent regulation, which would have banned romance between all professors and undergraduates, was voted down.
