Book Description

They exchange furtive touches with students during classroom movies. They make out in a closet while other children study nearby. They get caught having sex with kids in cars, classrooms, motels, homes, public libraries, even church parking lots. Why are more female teachers, coaches and even school board members risking it all? Are they “hot,” or are they pedophiles? From Mary Kay Letourneau and Debra LaFave to the very latest offenders, Bad Apples is the first book to look at why female teachers are having sex with underage students. Bad Apples also examines gender bias in sentencing, the psychological effect on the children they molest, the role of social networking and the media, and how parents and schools can keep students safe.
Rebecca Morris is also the author of the Amazon bestseller Ted and Ann – The Mystery of a Missing Child and Her Neighbor Ted Bundy, about an 8-year-old girl who vanished from her Tacoma, Wash. neighborhood and who may have been Bundy's first victim.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Eye and Mind Opener! March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I confess, when I first heard about the various media reports of female teachers mating with minor boys, I laughed until my abdominal region ached.


When I was in elementary, middle and high school, it was a popular fantasy of every heterosexual male student to "get hooked up" with the hot female teacher. So, how can it be so wrong?

According to Morris, this is psychologically damaging to the young students. As she pointed out, teachers are in a profession to be trusted, like a pastor, psychologist, or medical doctor. Any sexual conduct, which is unprofessional, is a violation of that trust. This predatory act will likely mentally damage the student when he reaches adulthood. Morris presented that vicitms of such crimes suffering symptons of depression and post traumatic stress syndrome.

After reading Bad Apples, I was educated on how vicious and selfish female sexual predators can be. These criminals are just as malicious and dangerous as their male counterparts.

Presently, when I am notified about a female teacher molesting a young male student, I do not laugh.

Thank you for reading my review, I hope is was helpful.

Mas Vida!

5.0 out of 5 stars Have A Son? You Should Be Reading This! February 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It used to be only male teachers were making the evening news for having sex with their students, but now, with frighteningly increasing frequency, we're seeing stories about female teachers seducing their adolescent students.

Are these kinds of "relationships" happening more or just being reported more? And, sure, it's a crime but teenage boys are nothing but raging hormones, so is it really that big of a deal?

Award winning journalist and author of Ted and Ann: The Mystery of a Missing Child and Her Neighbor Ted Bundy Rebecca Morris exposes the truth about these "affairs" that many, especially men, feel is nothing more a boys initiation into manhood in her new book Bad Apples - Inside the Teacher/Student Sex Scandal Epidemic.

If you have a son, grandson, stepson, godson, nephew, or just a young boy you care about, you need to read BAD APPLES and educate yourself on how these Mrs. Robinson-to-the-extreme couplings can be more dangerous than the male teacher/female student counterparts. Plus, you'll learn some fairly simple things you can do to make sure the special young boy in your life doesn't fall into the hands of a predator disguised as a teacher.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beneath the Surface July 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It is always intriguing to hear the details of a female teacher becoming sexually involved with one of her young students. Especially if the student is shockingly young or the teacher especially attractive.
Yet this short book helps us see below the shocking details. The women teachers are often: emotionally immature, depressed, lonely, with evidence of abuse or neglect in their own childhoods. They often believe they have found an extraordinary, perfect, powerful love-- even if she is middle aged and her lover, ten. Circumstances quite different from the male teacher who is sexually active with a student.
Punishments have been less severe for the convicted female teacher. And rightly so, in my opinion. Still, the devastating effects on children can not be pushed aside. They are often devastating and far-reaching. A sad result for all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reads like a term paper May 10, 2013
By Mia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This (free) ebook is well-written, but reads like a term paper. Very well researched and referenced, but it's not really a "biography/memoir" (which is how this is categorized on Amazon). I think there was too much time devoted to categorizations of the women involved in these student/teacher scandals -- there are pages and pages of charts about things like which percent of them have blonde hair and what percent would be considered "pretty". It's not info that is useful in any sort of analysis and definitely not interesting to read if you're looking for background on some of the people involved in these crimes and what their possible motives could be.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sad state of affairs! April 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How sad it is that the school administrators and teacher unions participate in the cover-up of sexual predators. These men and women do not belong in the noble profession of teaching, and I am appalled that the school districts protect them! How can anyone be "too beautiful" to go to jail? LaFave is just as much a criminal as if she had committed murder. In fact, she did -- she murdered a boy's innocence! And i find it unconscionable that a judge would say that sex between a grown woman in a position of authority and a teen-age boy of 15 is not a crime! The judge should be thrown in jail!
