This research paper seeks to explore, in particular, ethical issues that are present in Social Sciences and Humanities. The study aims to evaluate the effect of romantic student- staff relationships at the secondary school level as well as how they could be avoided. These types of relationships create a myriad of problems for both students, teachers as well as the institution as a whole.
