Another day, another SoCal teacher suspected of having sex with a student.

Today, KTLA reports that the teacher in question is from Davis Middle School in Compton. He was placed on leave after a female student's mother approached school employees and let them know that she suspected a sexual relationship was happening between the teacher and her daughter.

Some Compton Unified school board members believe that Superintendent Karen Frison knew about the allegations since January, though, and kept them in the dark. Parents have also complained about not being informed.

The teacher hasn't been arrested, and the L.A. County Sheriff's Department is investigating the accusations.
