Educators accused and disciplined by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners for relationship misconduct since 1981 and posted on the IBEE website. This dataset includes teachers, coaches and administrators licensed by the State of Iowa. Educator ages represent when alleged incidents occurred, not when educators were disciplined by the State. URLs (viewable by scrolling to the right) are provided for IBEE disciplinary documents and related news accounts, which often provided greater detail than the documents posted by the IBEE.
